    And a few others.

    Id love to see the underside of that ouija board. I bought that same board game at a garage sale to make that same movement, so whats the trick I was planning on using a magnet underneath and put one in the game piece. But ifigured the movement would be the same everytime. I REALLY love your movement

    Glad I could help. If you have any questions, just PM me!

    I'm almost finished writing up a tutorial on how to build this Ouija Bd. I should have it posted shortly. I use two stacks of two disc magnets (side by side) on the moving bar under the board. Then another stack of two disc magnets glued on the center of the planchette (the moving pointer thingy). Somehow, the magnetic fields of all these magnets makes the planchette spin around as it moves. That all happend by accident.
    In the meantime, here's the insides:

    Dave when I checked your site (and borrowed one of your pics) I thought you were getting ready to do a how to on this motor.

    Should come in handy because this motor is slowly but surely becoming as popular as the wiper motor. I guess I better order a new batch of them because they are going fast...a couple weeks ago Surplus Center had a couple thousand and now they are down to 600 .

    Would this type of motor last on an FCG or would it just not be enough to make the ghost move or over heat, etc?

    Better hurry up everyone. SurplusCenter started out with something like 1400 in April and they have less than 250 in stock right now. These might sell out before October.
