Don't know which tut you are using but I used this one:
I have seen this on and off CL for the last 3 years. It is the ultimate Halloween prop. I have a 1973 Cadillac Hearse in my yard haunt. Everyone loves it. It's also great for hauling stuff.
I have quite a few you might want to rent. What is your budget? Look at my photo album here to see if it's what you're looking for...
Here is a video of it in action. This was my test one using a 9v battery but actual ones will be connected to 12 vdc wall wart via RCA jacks. So far they're coming in at around a buck to make....
Now that I have gotten everything and found I need 2 in a series but then the series of 2 each will be parallel. Did fire them up last night and they look great! Now all my JOL's all flash...
Which lead did you put the resistor on, the long or short? Got my LEDs today just waiting for resistors.
Yeah with the LED's I got this year it was awesome! These are the ones I got:
On the led.linear1.org site:
How many LEDs can I drive in series?
LED basics Practical LEDs
It depends on your supply voltage. You have to be able to overcome the cumulative...
Again thanks for the heads up Derek. Bidding on a lot of 50 now for $3.00. Also for the led.linear1.org site. I discovered that at 2V forward, I can get 6 on each 12VDC wall wart. I have 18 JOLs...
I used liquid starch and school glue with paper grocery bags. Then coated with deck sealer. They stay outside for 2 weeks.
Thanks again Derek! I can't wait to get started with this. The flicker unit I built about 6 years ago crapped out this year so this will be great. Going to hit up Radio Shack for the resistors.
I ordered them, thanks for the link. Actually, I'm not building candles. I going to replace the flicker in my foam JOLs. What size resistor do I need and how many can I put on a 12 volt wall wart?...
I built a couple of these:
Saved a ton of money.
Where do you get the 5mm LED flicker bulbs? I saw some on eBay but thought maybe you get them somewhere else.
Yeah, This is the one at Disneyland in Anaheim, CA.
Yup, That's the guy. Try asking a question about Bat's day and the response will be "All the information is on the website." Some of my friends in the Hearse club have had run in with him.
The guy who runs it is a JERK! It's nothing but drama. But if that's what you're into, knock yourself out.
We had a blast! The TOTs and parents loved it.
It always looks better in person but here it is:
I enjoyed that very much, Thanks for sharing.
I went to Walmart. The $4.68 bags were the best deal only about .20 cents an oz. that was the best price I found.
The first weekend in October so this year it will be the 5th. In the past I have started later and the neighbor kids come around and ask when I will start setting up.
"Go to the light Carol Anne, There's peace in the light!"
Cracks me up every time!
Never noticed the Plaque in the Mc Donalds. Will check it out on Friday. We always stop there on our way to Disneyland and this Friday the 13th kicks off Halloween Time. Glad you...
