    Default Electric chair plans

    I've seen some very detailed plans someplace for an electric chair. Does anyone recall seeing anything on the internet for prop. I'se search electric chairs but cant find good plans.

    Thanks
    Mike

    Or did you want one without a prop, like this one:

    I though of making one with a box or empty spot on the bottom of the seat, where i will place a neck massager that can go crazy shaking the whole thing. With strobes and sound it should be pretty good. Kind of a photo op kinda thing

    I will put my electric chair, made with a wiper motor (total cost about $25.00), up against any one's that using air...well any one, but WBN.

    I had more comments on my electrocution tunnel and chair than any prop I made. I also had at least 20 people to leave me their e-mail so I can send them the building plans, which takes 2 hours to make. that's 20 people that never made a hollween prop before in their life. So you could say that chair, added 20 more people, to this crazy world of prop building.

    Interesting comments, I am considering this for the future. Some chairs are for a prop/dummy and others are for people to sit in. Which is yours for? I kind of like the thought of an interactive prop that they sit in if they want of course!

    Link?

    I talked to the neighborhood parents during Halloween, and I'm thinking that a block party the weekend of Halloween in addition to the yard display and TOTs on Halloween itself may be in the cards. I talked to the kids next door about whether they thought having a coffin that they could get their photos taken in would be cool, and they were all over it! I'm planning on setting up a Bucky on a throne and the coffin in the garage (thanks to whoever is doing this already- it is a great idea!) An electric chair would fit right in, I think.

    Let me know if you run across anyone who has built one that people can sit in. I saw a post on here before halloween where someone had vibrating motors from beds and someone suggested using one for an electric chair. I want one that shakes and vibrates not just a chair to sit in.

    Hope the fog timer worked well, mine did. It was a blessing freeing me from pushing the button and stringing more wire......had enough already.

    Yep, worked like a charm. I overfilled the constant fogger though, and thought it was broken. It finally cleared the breather tube and started working though (after I'd taken it apart to see what the problem was!)

    I bought the WalMart Gemmy timer for the 400W, so had them both on timers and could actually TALK to people about the haunt instead of pushing buttons!

    I know the feeling. I was stuck pushing the buttons for my other fogger and the Trash can trauma. I tried to get it hooked up to a motion dector as a trigger and it worked find during set up but on the final check out it just kept going off and draining the air tank.....so I quickly switched it back to the manual mode.....so between pushing buttons, the fog and the thunder I could not see, hear or talk to anyone.....Goal for 06 is to get the automation working and buy a few more Event Control Timers periodically over the next year. Then I want to get a black cloak and be the Haunt Master and guide people through....This way the will stop where needed and I can keep them from grabing/kicking/hitting the props.....now if this happens or not we'll have to wait and seee...
