    We just added two more items to the pre-sale! We've added 100' spools of 3/16" dual wall shrink tubing at an extremely low price of $12.95.

    We've also added solder sleeves for pixel wires. Solder sleeves are an inch and a half piece of shrink tubing with a small amount of low heat solder inside. When heated with a heat gun it shrinks and solders at the same time! You can see them here

    Both of those look interesting. I spend a ton of time soldering pigtails and such. Any video of the solder sleeves and some technical details, e.g. twist the wires together first? Strip how much? What keeps them in place while you transport your wires over to the heatgun.

    These show sold out.
    That's a feature not a bug.
    There's no charge for that.

    Pre-Sale starts on 1/1/16. I believe that are not available for order until then from the first post of this thread.

    Is there a pigtail on the 3 wire connectors or is it just the connector. If there are pigtails how long are they.

    Pigtails are not included. They can be purchased separately as individuals or mating pairs. Each pigtail is 18" in length. A mated pair has a combined length of 36".

    Solder sleeves look promising.

    Pixel icicles sound interesting. Do you have a pic or can you tell us if they look like strips or individual bullet nodes or something totally different?
    2014 - pretty basic static display
    2015 - lots of Blinky Flashy
    5 x Renard SS24
    2 x Renard SS16 for singing trees
    2 x e682 for around 2000 pixels
    2016 - Up to around 12,000 pixels and still wanting more.
