Transformer Size

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone! 

Quick question on lighting. I want to put in 5 to 6 light fixtures with a total of roughly 10 bulbs what size transformer should i get?

I read that if i get one that is too big it will short out the lights? As always I appreciate any feedback, thank you!

I live in a salt air environment so I take extra precautions to tape all of my connections with clear tape so the brass eyelets (never use  brads) don't corrode. This extra step pretty much guarantees they never come loose or cause me any problems.

      You might like to look @ this if you were lucky enough to get a doll's houses at Christmas

      OH MY.  I'm a doof.  I took a loooong break from minis and am firing it up again, but have had to refresh on many things.   I did the biggest rookie mistake. i spent so much wasted time meticulously installing wall sconces  so the wires were under wallpaper and just realized they make ADAPTERS for them. i'd only done ceiling lights and wall plugs.   duh me.  They look good but such a royal pain to noodle it all through the hardest way possible.  ugh

      Does anyone have any experience lighting a dollhouse made of Foamcore? I am trying to decide among 3 volt LED systems, and round wire or tape wire. Also the house will be 1:16 scale. It's a 3 story, 10 room wall house of my own design. Has anyone built a large project in Foamcore? Is the 3/16th thick, readily available Foamcore adequate, or do I need to track down the 1/2 inch stuff? Or how about a double thickness? I would really love to here from someone who has actually worked with Foamcore, not just conjecture.
      I live in an apartment so cutting out a house out of plywood is not practical. I have prior experience building kits and with the different wiring systems. I have also made a large house out of double thick cardboard before. I haven't ruled out cardboard as a building material, I just thought Foamcore might be more durable and nicer to work with.
