If you have an Aluminum Christmas, this is the first and a MUST HAVE accessory you need. Since you should not string electric lights on Aluminum Christmas trees, a Rotating Color Wheel is the traditional and best way to light it. For maximum pleasure and convenience order one of our color wheels. The color wheel lenses are Green, Blue, Red and Orange. It is designed for up to a 60 watt Halogen Spot / Flood* light (not included). There is an On / Off switch on the AC cord. While one is great, 2 gets both sides, and 3 is crazy colorful. Yeah, Baby!

$79.99 when ordered separately

 $54.99 when ordered with a tree!

COLOR WHEELS SOLD OUT W/ NO ETA ON MORE. SORRY

* Color Wheels have always been designed since their inception in the 50's, to work with Spot or Flood type bulbs.
Standard light bulbs are "omni-directional" and will be very ineffective as a light source when used in a color wheel.
When choosing bulbs, purchase small to medium diameter bulbs. The largest body bulbs will not fit unless you also purchase
base extensions.
 

A NOTE ABOUT VINTAGE / USED / OLD ROTATING CHRISTMAS TREE STANDS

We selectively purchase rotating tree stands from the late 1950's and early 1960's. Rotating tree stands have complicated motor / gearbox mechanisms for rotation. They also contain wires carrying 120 Volts AC. We disassemble, clean and re-lube every rotating tree stand that comes through. We also address any electrical issues such as frayed or brittle AC cords, internal wires, and intermittent switches. Most of the stands we buy are from sellers who said that "they work fine". When we get them, that is commonly not the case, or even if it is, it wouldn't have been for long. These stands have lubrications that are 40+ years old! At even half that age, most have started to turn to varnish. Some are so stiff that they are effectively "frozen" immobile.
Most are held together, not with screws or bolts, but with rivets which must be drilled out. The typical stand requires 2-4 hours of labor to bring back to life (unless it needs to be re-finished, which can double or triple that time).
There are some NEW, Chinese built stands of plastic on the market in the $80-$150 region, but from what we've been told, they are not built nearly as well, do not often turn a full 360 degrees, and do not often offer rotating AC outlets. Vintage tree stands can be great investments as they're all metal and made in the USA with 1950's / 1960's quality, but will need to have the "clock rolled back" about 40 years, just as the one's we offer have been, to be safe, usable and reliable.
Just FYI.
