    Everything pulled through okay last night. Not sure how windy it was but the thunderstorms were the kind to wake you up at night. Between 2 am and when I got home a 6pm, the rain gauge measured 2 and half inches of rain. More rain on the way....

    Have you considered using something like 3 PVC pipes for the fence posts? You could use rebar pounded into the ground to provide support. Making the posts out of wood is going to make them quite heavy and if you make them out of foam board I think you will need to spend a serious amount of labor making them look real. PVC pipe just needs some paint.

    Hey thanks for the kind words DaveintheGrave! Got the new servo hooked up today and that did the trick, plenty of torque. I'm pretty happy with the random side to side movement now, just gotta isolate that monster servo to cut down on the noise. I'll try to get a video up soon.

    Thanks Dave. The transportable need is so I can fit the boards in the car to get them home from HD. We have 2 new sedans with liftback/passthru trunk area that I can put longer things in through but the exact length could be an issue. 6 feet shouldn't be an issue. 8 not so sure. In fact I'm thinking of using some of the folded insulation sheathing I have at home for the front of the posts. The insulation is 4' x 50' (like these) and I can cut into 6 or 8ft sections.

    Great ideas, Spookie! It all sounds good on paper. I hope it all comes together the way you want it to. Just wondered----why does it need to be transportable?

    Looks fantastic so far, J-Man! Your artistic ability seems wonderfully apparent, to me. And good luck with the mechanism. You know I love animated props !

    Don't go overboard with lots of hard to make foods. People are fine with easy party foods like punch, chips and a hearty dip. Just toss some decor around it. Have guests bring a food dish or a pumpkin to carve for a contest. You just have to provide the 'award'.

    I love ahs I did hear evan is sitting out of this one. My fav is the first season followed by coven and asylum my least favorite was freak show and hotel. I did love the first part of roanoke but the second half sucked. cult I thought was done very well it hit all of the sore subjects and really put in perspective of what people of capable of when push comes to shove. I loved the last season. And ryan murphy is suppose to be in with netflix to do a witchy type series on there.

    If you go with the 8' boards, you may wanna use the 16" blocks. 8' tall boards will catch more wind than you think.

    If anyone purchases the LED flashing cone lights for their projects and is having an issue with it not seeming to work, might be that the batteries are not properly installed. There are indications on the battery holder and the top of the light but not obvious as the indicators are the same color as the lamp. I took a black Sharpie to my light to make it easier to see and get set up quickly. No instructions in the box they come in. I bought my lights off an ebay seller in Chino, CA as I got a...

    I could go with a 8x8x16 inch concrete block for a wider post base and the resulting foam panel would be wider than the 5 inches with the half blocks and it would look more sturdy. From HomeDepot the cost would be 1.60 (8x8x8) or 1.90 (8x8x16) so not a huge cost difference. The longer length block is 31 lbs however and not sure if I want to be lugging those blocks around. If you were doing this project what way would you lean for planning the base? Plan to start with one test post next week...

    Determined to pull off the dino theme this year and working on an idea for an electric fence to cordon off areas where I will be using AtmosFear's Dino Experience projections for "live" dinosaurs. I'm trying to keep the cost down, easy construction (limited tools), materials need to fit in my car for transport, and hopefully a convincing fence look in the end. Here's my rough drawing of what I have in mind. Here's some of the materials: 1) concrete 8x8x8 in. block, interior hole...
