    The next morning, the Deputy just had to tell the Sheriff, personally, himself. He thought about exactly how he should go about telling his "Boss", the Sheriff. "Good Morning, Sheriff! He said .(so far so good.) "I might have a lead on the missing Naval Shell taken from the display outside?" The Sheriff was now giving his Deputy his full attention! "So, what do you know?" "I think we may have seen where that shell will be used." "Used? You mean fired? Or just packed once again with...

    That night after he got home, the Deputy was searching for some information that could help them figure out what the long steel tube stuck into the ground might be used for? "Trapping electricity with a steel tower".... ? Well what good would it do if it couldn't pay back some of the costs to buy and install such a large item as what we saw out there? "No. No such technology out there as of now." As the hours passed he found himself buried in more "Crack-pot" theory's and was becoming quite...

    All three men, Sheriff, Deputy, plus this catatonic stranger seem frozen...the Sheriff speaks:"Don't I know you, friend?" Still no sign of life or comprehension.... "HEY! Fellah!" time passes.... "Uh?" He made a sound! His eyes begin to focus as his eye brows narrow upon two uniforms before him. "YOW!" He squeaks loudly. "What the, ..? "Are you OK, Sir?" The Deputy inquires. The man looks slowly to his right side, then back to his left side, then his eyes focus upon the sheriff, a...

    As both the Sheriff and Deputy get out of the Squad car, both men are transfixed at what they see behind the large house 100 feet away. His Deputy turns around as they walk seeing many pieces of various machinery parked along the path to the house, "Is that a well-drilling rig?" The Deputy asks the Sheriff. "Looks to be one." The Sheriff answers. ("Look at all of this junk! Two ancient, rusty dump trucks, a ball-of-rust backhoe, another backhoe with a trench digging attachment, an old,...

    "I think it's time to pay another visit to "Mr. Writer". "Why is that, Sheriff?"

    A whisper left his lips:"Hurry! hurry!" "I'.m moving as fast as I can, mister!" "Quiet! Shush!.. STOP! Don't move become a "statue". Under the glare of floodlights pointed straight "Up" the two men attempting to quiet each other were now frozen, imitating clothing store dummies. Fifty feet away a young County Deputy was standing smoking his "Break" cigarette looking straight ahead out into the quiet street, 3AM, no traffic, almost no sounds to be heard.. then a random coyote from a...

    Minksocks--You could go ahead and order the motor kit from him. It would already have a mounting plate attached to the motor shaft that should make it easier to mount the pulley to the motor. A faster motor would be good, but right now I wouldn't recommend going faster than the 10/12 RPM motor (that's what I use). I've been experimenting and wanted to us a 36 RPM motor, but that motor takes very little resistance to make it reverse itself. Which means it would not be able to lift very much...

    28 yrs. ago i wrote and did some Murder Mysterys here inside my Haunted house. THE biggest problem were the "Adults" who could not or would not "Play" or "Pretend"!? It was a serious problem when a person of this "mind" was an important character who had to speak a few lines or clues. I might have solved that by marking those couple of envelopes with a small hand-drawn "Star" up in the corner , this was for the organizer to make sure they knew that person would "PLAY", so everyone else...

    "Wintertime" is slow... but sometimes it can also be So Much FUN! How could that be true? Well, imagine this:When just a couple shows up here on a cold, lonely winter night, I have so much pure "Time" to devote to entertaining, Just THEM! So 90 minutes or 180 minutes later.. they exit this house having heard so much more of the haunted history and having seen so many more routines I love to do, and they might be a bit scared, but everyone is usually laughing quite a bit of the time! We...

    Thanks, doto ! I think it's the same motor. As long as it reverses itself when stalled, it should work. And if the motor shaft is adaptable for mounting a pulley to it. I recommend a 4 to 5 inch diameter pulley, preferably made of plastic. A metal pulley may be too heavy to work properly. I'm going to post here ASAP how to make your own pulley, if desired.

    I don't know if he does or not. I'll ask him. If he doesn't, I can order it and ship it to you myself. I wouldn't think it would cost too much, since it hardly has any weight to it. Oh, you're not being a pain. I'm happy to help anytime! NOTE: I posted a video link to the Spider Levitator in my first post in the Instructor's thread.

    I think I've still got all the ones I bought as a kid. I remember they used to cost me $1.50 each. The closest thing I have would be in the ones I bought highlighting each of the "lands" at Disney World. The Liberty Square has some Haunted Mansion pics if I remember correctly.
