Yes KeithE4 the lights are already installed on the tree. Most likely I will have to replace the lights but I am going to try a few tricks first. The statement I made about connecting the 6KV plate transformer and watching for sparks has given me an Idea.
No I am not going to use 6KV on the tree!!! But I am going to scale it down a bit and limit the current to a safe level. Waiting on wife to leave so I can try it. I will post Idea and results later.
I bet this is about the dumbest thing that has been discussed on this board in a while!
Yes I know $3.00 a strand and replace the lights, you are right. But I have got to have a little fun sometime.
Keep the Ideas comeing folks. Fire extingusher is full and insurance is paid. Keep the Ideas coming.
