Hi Cloe, You should have no trouble using the eBay controller with your motors. If you look on the underside of the controller, it should be marked something like Motor - + and Power - + . If you then cut your quick connector (with the Red plugs) you should be able to splice that right to your controller. The side of the splice coming from the power supply will go to ( Power - + ) Not sure if you have a meter and can determine which wire is positive and which is negative...
One thing to consider is accessories. Dremel has a lot of extras you can purchase. I am not familiar with the B&D and what all it has to offer. You may want to search around the big box stores as well this week. With Father's Day right around the corner, you might find a special deal locally. :)
Hi all, I have 3 displays we used at the recent MHC show I'd like to unload. They are all in excellent shape. The wooden bases are not included, but we will supply a couple of our PVC mounting bases with each frame. :) Please send a PM if you are interested and I will get you a shipping quote. Thanks!
This is the TOT sized kit (4 feet tall) $35 + shipping
You are on the right track. We use self drilling screws for all of our static and animated PVC prop kits and they work great. The trick is not to over tighten them. You want to make sure you slow your drill down as the screws tighten so you don't strip the PVC. This will also allow you to remove them if you need to break your prop down for storage. You can find self drilling screws at Home Depot and Lowes.
Hearing that I was able to give you the confidence to build your first props is the nicest compliment I could hope to get. :D I looked at your albums and remembered your props right away. You did a fantastic job. Now that you have built your own props, it's going to be very hard to buy them going forward. You're going to want to build everything yourself. :) you are off to a great start!
Thanks! We actually sold him at the MHC show in Columbus. His new home will be at a hayride that has been in operation since 1979. I am glad he found a good home. Hopefully we'll see a few more pop up. I think we sold about 22 of those kits at the show. I actually have plans for a new character using our Kit. :)
ErrKILLkill , the arms are like rubber fake arms I got on discount for 1$ each, so, perfect for him. The entire body is pvc pipes. Here
