    Still putting things back together, believe it or not. Just unpacked storage and have started to get the shop put together, pictures soon. The yard is an absolute disaster from the remodeling. Debating how 'big' we'll go halloween wise, vs how much we just work on the yard. Depends on whether I can budget up a new patio for the back yard or not.

    99% sure you could just use a plaster of paris skull *provided you're just going for looks and using a propane fire pit, not trying to cook or use it as refractory for actual heating*. I don't know if any of my plaster skulls don't have foam in them anymore, but if I find one, I'll certainly throw it on the fire pit and see if it explodes or something.

    I'm sure Gym will be by soon... I was told our house was haunted, someone died during original construction, and whatnot. I've yet to see any evidence here. I used to work at a place that was widely considered haunted. Picture that warehouse where the Ark was stuffed in Indiana Jones. Yes, govt warehouse with assorted large crates just like that. No I can't tell you what was in them. Yes, TOP MEN were working on that as we speak. Anyway. Equivalent of 4 football fields...

    Hi and Welcome to the forum! :D We do have several resident experts on blowmolds on here, but not sure if they'll be active this time of year. There is always a small core group that visits year round, but the place gets hopping around July with all the planning and building. In any case, you can try using the search function to seek out blowmold threads from the past and hopefully some folks that have some knowledge will pop in here and help you out at some point.

    Yeah, they're updating the entire building, buying all new. "This 80s tech stuff needs to go." A lot of it is just too big to save. Massive drill presses, table saws, radial arm saws, etc that each would fill my entire garage. Projectors will be going out the door soon. None of them have HDMI inputs, so are "worthless".

    You never know what kind of stuff ends up in the trash at work...(and a little project I'm working on on top). First piece for the new shop. For those wondering what the heck it is since the cell phone didn't picture it well, here's new ones: http://www.engineersupply.com/light-tables-drafting.aspx

    I would want to add faces. I could see making it look sort of rough/stone like, but actually just carve out screaming faces or skulls all the way from floor to ceiling.

    My brother repairs musical equipment. He gave me a bunch of burnt out amp tubes, which made some interesting bits. I also hit up some TV repair shops and got all sorts of fun gizmos that were 'broken'. (BE ADVISED, old TVs um...have bits that can leak god knows what the hell that was.) Vacuum repair shops if you have them, too.

    Crappy video of when I was selling some of my lab equipment, made to show the local group what everything was, but shows a lot how I built things I see a couple tesla balls in the pic you posted, and they are cheap enough these days to use as part of a prop. https://www.google.com/webhp?sourceid=chrome-instant&ion=1&espv=2&ie=UTF-8#q=tesla+ball&* The cheese ball bucket typically found at wal mart several times during the year makes a fantastic lab jar.

Dead Ted Said...

Katchow!! Bloggin' at your face!

First,
Who of you could possibly be interested in what I have to say?


Halloween is over. Thank-good-ness. MMVIII was, by far, the most taxing Halloween experience to date. This year brought many new ideas to the table, and many ideas to fruition... and many tables into something other than their original purpose.
This year's success also came at high price, both literally and figuratively. I've found myself
