    Default Making string lights

    Hello,

    I want to make custom lengths of string lighting. I can find the wire and sockets, but is there a machine that installs the sockets? Preferably with adjustable spacing options.

    Thanks in advance

    This assumes you are doing incandescent using spt style wiring. I have not seen a machine except your fingers (and maybe a pliers). You could probably design some little holder and masher. It would be pretty basic to do. Then make a jig that would hold the just finished socket and move down the line. This video shows a type of tool you can use.
