Danger!  Danger!!  Danger!!!  Run away as fast as you can!

Oh wait, it's too late - you now have a severe case of Christmas Light Addiction Problem (also known as CLAP).
Welcome to the club :)

Using LOR (mostly SuperStar) for all sequencing - using FPP only to drive P5 and P10 panels.

I haven't even used my build for a season yet and I already changed it up.

They are female quick disconnect lugs with male quick disconnect posts.

Looks like they should give the ability to swap out a power supply fairly quickly. Also keeps it neat and tidy. Very nice job.

Very nice idea.  I've been looking for something that would make swapping supplies a bit easier.
Thanks for sharing.


The $1.28 per is a bit of a shock for a small piece of metal, but it is what it is.

Ok I didnt think I would have spent that much on them. These are the ones I got, not the other ones.

So I am too late in asking this question but I may as well try to find out. How did everyone go about drilling the 3.5" hole for the vents in the BUD enclosure? I went to HD and asked if a holesaw would work for 1/4" thick plastic and the guy told me yes. It may be that I wasn't able to put a block of wood behind it when I was drilling but the holesaw gouged my enclosure pretty bad on the first hole. Thats why I have the foam gasket on the inside. The second hole I used my dremel but it was still pretty jagged. Any help would be greatly appreciated for the next enclosure. Thanks.


Take and run the hole saw in reverse to start, then go forward.  If you use some sort of a backer, so much the better.
When in doubt, empty the magazine!
Better to be tried by 12 than carried by 6.

A drill press helps a lot too.
