    Diabolik replied to a thread Static: Prop outdoor stand in Halloween Props
    Are the props themselves made out of PVC? If they are PVC bodies you can pound some rebar or steel rod into the ground and have it coming up into the PVC legs. This might even work if you just pound a longer rod into the ground and then attach your prop to the rod if you cannot run it up inside the legs.:)

    Yup... Every year is a fun time, wondering how Mother Nature will react on Halloween day.

    I have had this controller for several years. I used it one Halloween in our garage. It has been stored in it's box ever since. The controller is in excellent shape and has never even been mounted. I have the original manual and power pack for it. This is a direct wire 2 channel controller. I am not sure of the exact program length, but I believe it is at least 2 minutes. It has built in audio recording that provides a line out signal and also offers an ambient soundtrack and also scare...

    Thanks Sharon, if it is something you are interested in, send me a PM and I will gladly get you a shipping quote. :D Thanks, it is very smooth and quiet. Even at that low speed the wiper motors make very little noise.

    If you contact them, you can get them to mold your head/hands with the PVC embedded in it. That it typically how we get them. You and me both. I am totally a nuts and bolts guy. For the money, you can't go wrong with their stuff. It looks great and holds up really well. Thanks Jana! I think he'd be a great addition to any graveyard. I promise I'll get a video of him up very soon. Tonight we had to finish packing some stuff for MHC as some parts we were waiting on finally showed up....

    Nice job! I think the pose is fantastic and you did really well with the details. The Tots will certainly think she is real this year.

    Howdy, that is actually a foam filled prop head from Ghost Ride Productions called Old Timer. The hands are from them as well. They are the Caretaker hands. I use their body parts on most of our finished stuff and can't say enough good things about their stuff. They also have a Caretaker head that is similar.

    Thank you for the replies. Yeah, I probably should have taken a video of him when I had him out last night. Maybe I'll try and snap one tonight. :)

    I am finally getting back to finishing this poor guy since we are running out of time before MHC. He is one of my last projects left before the show. Not sure if he is 100% yet, but he's getting closer. Let me know what you think!

    Typically the wiper motors will have a wire for a slow speed and a faster speed on them. It's really a matter of how slow you want it to go. If you purchase a PWM (speed controller) you can literally make the motor crawl. On the PWM there are 4 terminals, power in + & - and 2 terminals out to your motor + & -. Fairly straightforward to connect. We use some like these on our props and they work great. http://www.ebay.com/itm/291261719137?_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT

    Don't feel bad. I've got two (including the Watchman) standing half finished in my garage. I am trying to wrap up a bathroom remodel. Bleh. Hoping to get back on those guys this week. I am sure you'll get the poor guy some pants sooner or later. :rolleyes:

    I don't want to steal this thread or derail the topic, but I have been watching this one for a while. This is a great thread. I grew up visiting Daytona Beach Shores until I was about 17. I am 43 now and my wife and I got to go back to Daytona in September for the first time in many years. We really enjoyed it even though it was about 93 all week. We are going back this September again. We have toyed with the idea of moving South. I have a coworker that has been living near Orlando almost a...

    About the little witch, I love her, I put her sometimes sitting on my excersice bike in the basement in the dark, scared the hell out of my wife a few times. Horrible, I know, but funny at the same time (L).
