Happy Thanksgiving,
I'd like to have a string of 25-40 watt bulbs wired similar to a string of Christmas lights, with, a dimmer that would create a least to brightest sequence along the string. How do I do this? :santa:

String of bulbs w/ gradient dimmer

Hi,
I have project I'd like to complete myself or hire an electrician and provide sufficient hardware. Can you advise a forum I can post to and possible helpful tags or title? My question:

I'd like to have a string of 25-40 watt bulbs wired similar to a string of Christmas lights (but its for a chandelier), with, a dimmer that would create a least to brightest sequence along the string. How do I do this?

I must apologize before this thread gets closed. There is a DIY site where people would be happy to help you with this installation. This site is for electricians and electrical contractors to discuss the electrical trade and business topics. Sorry for any confusion.

Seems straightforward. A string of lights with a dimmer to brighter effect along the string. Is this not the place to seek problem solving?
If I were to give you some advice and there were to be a catastrophic failure resulting in some damage or loss of property I as an electrical contractor could be held liable for the damages. Therefore you will find it difficult to find the answers you want here as most of the members of this site are electrical contractors and are held to the same standards. The DIY chat room is the best place to post your question.

When I was a child I had a fever
My hands felt just like two balloons
Now I've got that feeling once again
I can't explain you would not understand
This is not how I am
