  1. How many kids do you make cry?

    General Halloween
    I try not to make kids cry. I really can't think of any that have cried over my decor. I do have a few animated props but none that are super scary or gory. Children of all ages have loved my set up. None that I have heard have found it lame or too over the top scary. I try and do spooky with a...
  2. Mechanical: Asking for help on how to prevent motors from burning out

    Halloween Props
    What type of motor did you buy? I was thinking of doing a tombstone popper for next year. I was thinking of doing a grave digger and a breathing grave with the motor I posted above.

    Absolutely astounding build. No way in a million years would I be able to build something as grand, but it is awesome seeing the creativity and the ability others have.

    Not quite sure if this is what you are looking for, but @Halstaff created this Youtube video showing how to get different motions with a wiper motor.
  6. What era/kind of lamps are these?

    General Halloween
    Not exactly sure what era or style they are, though I would say MasqAddikt is probably right. Baroque or Rococo would be more to the style. Thought I would offer another place to search for more lamps. Usually descriptions are very vague so you can be vague with your search terms. (i.e. if...

    General Halloween
    Carrie Candy Corn, a head turning delight. The Chocolate Blob, eat it before it eats you. Black Widow's Web, a real sticky treat Dr. Poison's lollipop, it'll have you dying for more.

  13. Halloween Humor

    General Halloween
    Hello and welcome to the forum. Looking forward to seeing what all you create. Definitely a lot of inspiration on this forum. I don't really do scary per say, more of a light spooky. I do add in some humor in my displays. All my tombstones have names like Pete Moss, Sam Manilla, and Pearl E...

Has nearly the same torque as a wiper motor as well. Only big issue with a car seat motor is the shaft is non standard so you...
