    UPDATE: Diabolik has offered to give the group a discount on the above mentioned motor kit. I'm not sure how much a discount, but I thought I would mention it and see how much interest there is in doing that. This is the 6 RPM motor, which is a bit slow for this prop. But, the motor could easily be swapped out for a faster one at a later date. (If the builder desires.) The kit would also definitely make the build less complicated.

    I also meant to mention in my thread that a member of this forum runs Spider Hill Prop Works and he sells one of these same synchronous motors. It's a bit more expensive than the Chinese motor, but it already has a crank and mounting plate attached to it. It's the 6 RPM motor. This could be an alternative. His customer service is top-notch, too! http://www.spiderhillpropworks.com/6-RPM-Synchronous-Gear-Motor-KIT_p_34.html

    Yes, I order the motors from China because they are so cheap. Thanks for the info. on the Chinese New Year celebrations. Gee, and I thought we Americans were partiers! The seller's note on ebay said selling would resume on Feb. 9th. That's all I'm going on. there ARE other Chinese sellers on e-bay with similar motors, just I can't vouch for how reliable these sellers are. I also meant to mention in my thread that a member of this forum (Diabolik) runs Spider Hill Prop Works and he sells one...

    :) That is just my way of saying "#!@*%!#&%$" without using bad language. You know, when you are gluing something, or painting something and instead of it doing as you wish, it completely goes the other way? That is what "shizzle-ca-put-wang-a-lang-a-prfttttttt"......means.:o

    :) I have a most EXCELLENT Reaper! A wonderful teaser arrived for me yesterday, full of Halloween treats! Something just perfect to add to my graveyard and a bag of assorted Halloween buttons to wear, plastic skeletons, a fortune fish, and a Star Wars Pez dispenser! It was Reaper madness at my house last night! Oh Thank You Reaper you made my Wednesday anything but ordinary! :):):) The skeleton lights up and plays a variety of Halloween sounds! With the assorted bones, this is a...

    Just to give a head start to anyone interested in getting in on this build, it would be wise to go ahead and order the motor that you will need to power this prop. I order mine from E-bay and they come from China. It usually takes them about two weeks to get to me (I'm in North Carolina). I'll post some links below with some recommendations. It's up to you how fast (RPMs) a motor you buy. Obviously the faster the motor, the quicker your spider prop will move up and down. This prop can also...

    If the prop has a switch that turns it "always on", it would be easy to just cut either the positive or negative battery wire and hook a switch mat in between the cut ends. A switch mat is just another version of a basic on/off switch. But, I'm guessing the prop would only be active as long as someone is standing on the mat. I even made my own switch mats a few years ago using some cardboard, aluminum foil and some of that buffalo snow material.

    I do agree that Halloween has changed over the years from what it used to be. In some ways better, in some ways worse. I cherish the memories from my childhood of looking forward all of the aspects of Halloween: buying a costume, feeling the chill in the air, trick-or-treating with my friends. Also even my elementary school would be decorated for the season. Every classroom would have one of those Beistle cardboard decorations taped to the door and the lunch room similarly decorated in the...
