Thanks ATP!!

Just a reminder that now is the time to buy bulbs for your tiki bar lighting.
I like to use the C7 and sometimes the C9 Christmas type bulbs in my lights.
They burn cool and they don’t use a bunch of power as well.
BUT it can be hard to find these bulbs at times other than Christmas.

I had to get some of mine from eBay this year.

Good Luck!!

I've read this thread before and have commented on it before as well, but since i started making my own lights i went back and looked at every page again last night. Some seriously amazing work here Skip. Such a huge variety of pieces and your rope work on the floats is just incredible. That's something i'll have to tackle myself one day but even when i do, it's going to take a LOT of practice to get anywhere near the quality of your work.

"It's time Skip."

That means a lot coming from you.

I kid, I don't know what that means.

Skip, have you tried using any of the new LED light bulbs in your Lamps yet
It seems a ton of different socket & bulb styles have been made available
in the last 6 months. (check amazon.com to see what I mean)

Let's do the Time Warp again.

Hey thanks Swizz I'm glad you got something out of it and your lights are cool.
But really your mugs are very cool, and your Bob o nut is one of the coolest tiki bobs out.
It would be a shame if you stopped making mugs.

Thanks ATP for the tip.
I have looked at LED and found some of them have a directional light beam.
In other words the LED C7s And C9s just don't work at all.

Also the larger LED standard base lights often have a bluish cast that I hate.( mostly home use)
I have to say that I cannot believe that we are in an age where the government can tell
us what kind of F*&^ing lights we can or cannot use!
Ok no politics.

Plus my main goal when I do make lights is to look like they are old, like from the Kahiki.
Just don't think the LED light fits that goal.
That is my view and if people like LED and make it work in their space all good too.
This tiki world is mostly fake and how you get the right look does not matter as long
as it works.

I did work at OSU as an electrician for a bit and changed lights for years and in this
time found that florescent lights burned out ALL over campus right after a power outage.
This makes me think that we will find that these LED lights also do not have the long life that we are told about.
They have transformers in them that would pop the light is my point.
I doubt that when testing the LED lights that they did real life tests that included power outages and surges from power going back on.
But maybe they did who knows.

Look I still have an answering machine and no cell phone so...
My brother thinks that is so funny.

Just as long as you are not still using a "FAX" machine, Skip

P.S. Vintage style LED lights are now available to, I am sold on these
as they really do make a big difference when the electric bill arrives.

Dam ATP just looked at those lights you posted and they are not cheep!
Would almost double the cost on one of my lights.

Cbus is about 2 hours away. I hang with the Cleveland people all the time but never make it down there which is my loss and something I need to remedy.
