Tell us about yourself!
How often do you have to clean out the pit, what kind of method do you use? I grew up on a farm with a two holer that had to be shoveled out about every six months - used by three adults and four kids.
Another problem that you will find with either the incandescent or LED bulb/sockets is that they will rust in the outdoor strings. Sometimes a simple swipe with fine sandpaper will produce a good contact. When I replace/repair any strings I place a coating of vaseline on the bulb wire ends, (very light coating). Seems to make the string last longer. This is a trick I used on the older incandescent bulbs so they can be removed without breaking the bulb during removal. Eliminates or reduces oxidation. I'm also a electrial engineer and really hate the process of fixing any sections of inoperative strings.Good instructable!!!!

Dump the music! I rather listen to what you are saying. Good video, but I usually put a rag or something in the bottom of the pan to make sure I don't nick or dull the teeth!!

I have used duct tape to hold together the wing root fairings on my aircraft after they were damage by an ice storm. Got me home without picking up any moister in the wing attachment area.
