Those that were at the December Monthly meet-up in SA may remember Reactor Drone had some glowing EL wire with him that he bought from Big W. It's part of the Christmas decorations range they were spruiking and goes for about $12 for three metres in a range of colours.

A few days ago I spotted at the Marion Big W that the were being flogged off for under $6 a pack. This may still be the case in the after Christmas sales and may also be true for the other states.

Thought I might give a heads up on that one in case there are those interested in making a home-made lightsaber or a Tron cossie! laugh.gif

No probs.

I bought a few packs today and plan on installing some of them into my poker tables.

Unfortunately, Big W aren't selling it this year that I could see (only went to two of the store admittedly). I haven't looked at other retailers yet for their Christmas decorations though.

Hi all,

Have any of you been experimenting with EL Wire lately or had dealings with any good vendors that sell the stuff?

I would love to hear of your experiences if you have time to post.

Many thanks,
Fez
