I have been busy with Spider Hill stuff and finally got around to wrap up a project I took on for a customer. She asked me to make her 3 animated frames for a set of the Haunted Mansion hitchhiking ghosts. This is the first one. It will be the Hunchback (Traveler) when it is done. I am only supplying the frames/mechanicals. I will get some pictures of the finished props to share once they are completed by her.
This one is pretty self explanatory. In some aspects it is a little overbuilt, but it should run a long time. There is a metal rod running down through the arm supported by 2 bronze bearings to protect the PVC from wear. I made the mechanism from some custom machined parts of my design and some hand made parts as well.
I will be starting on the other 2 here shortly.
