    Ours here in Piitsburgh has had the skeleton dogs and large stack of skull pillars for a couple of weeks now. I have not seen the skeletons yet.

    Diabolik replied to a thread Mechanical: Wiper motor problems in Halloween Props
    Do you have anything else you can power the motor off of temporarily (like a car battery) to eliminate the power supply? That sounds like something in the motor. We use a lot of wiper motors and I have never heard one tick. It is not unusual to hear them whine. Is this a new motor?

    Yes, we can ship anywhere. Our site is currently not enabled for overseas shipping (only Canada). If you are interested in something from our site you are welcome to send me a private message. Just let me know what items you are interested in and a shipping address so I can get you a quote. I know the overseas rates can get expensive. If I do it manually via PayPal, it will likely save you a few bucks on the quote. I find that most of our shipments to Canada end up being less that way.

    Those are full over the head masks on foam wig heads. Some mask companies will ship overseas. I got the zombie from www.deathstudios.com. Check with www.halloweenasylum.com too. They have a great selection of masks and hands and they might do overseas shipping

    Yup! Hey, maybe they're working their way up to a full sized skeletal horse! That would be a big hit with a lot of haunters.

    You all are going to kill me but I won't be participating this year. We've got a lot going on at the house (projects) and making a stone during all of it would probably make me more batty than I am. Love you all :)

    Danski, if you end up ordering a Watchman kit, drop me an email or note your order and let me know it's you. We have a run of extra drive arms from the Watchman kits that we cannot use. There was a problem and the slots ended up being cut wrong. Will not work in our kit, but will work fine for what you are doing here. Will make it easy for you to mimic the Watchman's mechanism. I'll gladly send you a plate and bearing with your kit to help you along. :) Ryan

    Danski, there are obviously a lot of ways to do this. Take a look at our Watchman mechanism. http://www.spiderhillpropworks.com/Animated-Watchman-Basic-Kit_p_31.html Very simple and provides a nice steady movement. The only arm you need is on the motor itself. You center your motor shaft with the "spine" pipe. You need to simply make a slotted arm to sit over the shaft of the motor arm. The length of the motor arm will determine how far it pans left/right.

    I just got this one less than 2 weeks ago. I wanted something relative to Spider Hill. I am very happy with it. I waited 3 months to get it done. It's nice having it on my forearm where I can see it. :)

    Sounds like he's just being a jerk. I'm relatively conservative but in this instance, I'd go back after hours or have a couple other people go back after everyone is gone and get the stuff, providing the dumpster is accessible. You can always deny knowledge of it. It's extremely wasteful and there is no good reason he can offer for not letting you have it (unless he or one of his buddies wants it!)

    How thick is the foam? Don't give up so easily. Explain to him that you have a good purpose for it. It's not in the dumpster yet but maybe if it can be picked up from the trailer he'd reconsider. Can you arrange to have someone with a truck come and load it up? Plead your case and see if he changes his mind.

    I am assuming that on the bottom of the speed controller it says POWER - + under those 2 screws? All of the speed controllers I have used like that are exactly the same.

    Have you tried reversing the two wires on the speed controller that are coming from the plug (power supply) you might have the polarity wrong. It looks right otherwise. :)

    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...
