    Does anyone have video of this prop yet? I would love to see how well it works, and how well the fan holds up. Sounded like a good idea, if it works.

    I'm guessing the fishing weight is to help throw off the weight distribution causing a better shaking motion. I isnt no ejumacation magor so if its wrong, don't sue me.

    3)I then drilled two holes into the corners of the fan paddle at the tip end farthest away from motor.


    4) i then attached a 3oz fishing weight to it using the two holes with zip-ties. choose your weight. too heavy fan won't have enoguh power to rotate. i originally attached a 1 1/2 lb weight. that didn't go well
    It goes on one of the fan blades to give it an offset weight that makes the assembly wiggle.

    Great directions but I’m not sure if it will have the power to really get the thing kicking after clothing is added. I built one from a five gallon bucket, a wiper motor and a 4 lb fishing weight last year, kicked great until I got it clothed. It worked but just didn’t get the realistic feel I was shooting for. This year I’m trying it again but will be making the limbs out of PVC pipe and I will be remounting the motor in the bucket to point from front to back. I’ll take photos of the entire process and post it.

    Did you ever get that vid done?

    Yes, please post a vid, I want to see this thing in action... sounds like a great cheap prop with a nice scare factor for the kiddies!
