At the beginning of that video from straight ahead it looks like there was only one motor. I wondered how the heck you are getting that much movement and torque out of just one! Then the camera moved and I saw the others.
That's a fantastic prop. You can't find those motors for $3 anymore but they are all over ebay for $8 shipped, which is still a little better than the reindeer motors.
That's great!! At first I thought building that must have been a lot of work, but I can see that it really wouldn't take that long. And what a time saver. Do you have any photos or video of the template/jig?
This is the place to be. Facebook is such a terrible format for sharing ideas. I recall some great props that were posted but the search feature sucks so those threads are basically gone forever. On here, a detailed search turns up every result in one second.
I have no artistic talent so I use a projector to enlarge small artwork to wall size, where I paint on either canvas or plywood. I got a good one on ebay for less than $40 shipped.
One of the things about fluorescent paint is that it should usually be applied over a white base. It doesn't seem to pop as much painting over black or the same color. I hear DayGlo does work well over black though.
halloween71 brought it to my attention in another thread that the horse is back in stock.
I'm posting here because it's quiet this time of year but if you have your email notifications turned on you should get one for this thread.
