    Well, I hope they will work well for your needs since you ordered 20 of them. You might have been better off just ordering a few to start with and experiment. That's what I do, anyway. LOL I'm not really sure how much torque these motors have, since I mainly use them for animated Ouija boards. The motors are similar to the reindeer motors where they will reverse direction if too much torque is applied. If you bought the same motor I put in the link, I just solder on an AC line cord that I...

    Hey, I didn't mean anything when I said I hadn't heard of charity. Its not really all that surprising because I don't get out much and don't really watch much local t.v. I just thought maybe my hubby might have heard about the event since he's in media. It sounds like it will be quite a bitter sweet day. He must feel so proud of the work he's doing and its wonderful something good can stem from such tragedy but I can only imagine how hard it must be for him too!

    Yes, I looked up the charity when you sent me the initial message. I was only curious because my hubby hadn't heard of the charity or the event. I have to agree with your hubby, it is gorgeous! We have the mountains in the upstate and live oaks dripping with moss and the ocean in the low country. As beautiful as the scenery is, it's the people that are the real treasure!

    Greenville is an awesome city and SC is an amazing state! We just LOVE it here. We moved from "up north" about 11 years ago. It sounds like it will be quite an event. Has he gotten a lot of press? Is your BIL retired and running his foundation full time or does he have a separate day job?

    Oh that's not bad at all! My hubby and sister in law have been at me for some time about doing this. I have been looking at other people's bracelets and pricing trying to get some idea what's out there. I was chatting to Bethene about this and told her I was wondering about how I might find out how frequently someone's products sell and she showed me how to see that information. Then I was discussing this Hallorenescene and she told me that etsy charged to list items. (I had no idea) I still...

    I frequently get frustrated with my hubby who when I need to talk feels the need to but in and "fix" the situation. I can't get it through to him that more often than not women just Need to talk and vent to a sympathetic ear!

    I can't believe that you guys are going to get slammed again with more winter! How crappy. I know that your going to be worn out with all the extra hours, but I'm sure the over time will be very much appreciated! I spent two hours this morning at our local tech college registration office. I thought I would be in and out in a jiffy, but nooooooo! What a fiasco. My daughter (in Italy) needs to take two classes this summer in order to graduate early. Oh well a mothers work never ends. ;)

    The Halloween Lady replied to a thread Static: Spooky tree in Halloween Props
    Here are my trees: I used HUGE sono tubes. (I went to a local concrete company) Then for the branches I cut holes and threaded PVC through the holes. I ran one pipe from one side, through to a hole on the other side, This gave it more strength. To get the PVC angles I needed I used "Spider Hill's" adjustable joints. (They rock) Then I molded chicken wire branches around my PVC branches. Lastly I used a TON of great stuff. However, for a less expensive alternative with the same "punch" you...

    Attach a length of PVC pipe on the back of the tombstone with this and you won't have any problems: However, if you ever use white Styrofoam or Dollar Store tombstones, high winds can tear those apart from the PVC only because the Styrofoam is so cheap and flimsy.

    Yea, what Mr. Chicken said is dead on. It was either the anatomical Bucky for over $100 or the cheapo Big Lots Bluckys for around $8. Nothing in between--like choosing between a Cadillac and a Yugo. I always chose the Yugo, myself. The Walgreens skeletons for $30 didn't even exist. Us old timers didn't have as many choices as you young whipper-snappers do now! LOL

    my son got a hold of two of my spider joints for his physics class. i had an idea to use them to animate a prop. they have done some modifications to them to animate them. i don't know exactly what they have done, but they have hooked them up to a wiper motor (my idea) and they have been running it non-stop for over a week now. according to my son, so far there is no damage to the joint. they are supposed to give me their results Apr 7. i hope they took pictures! i'll let you know if and when i know. you know how kids are...

    You posted this message the other day:

    I bought one of these at Harbor Freight and I love it. Great if your workpiece will not fit in the vise and quick too.

    I've never seen these before. I always wanted to know what those slots in the table top were for. Now I know. I ordered two today. Thanks for the info!
