    So jealous, I have always wanted a Cricut but for how much I actually neeeed it I could not justify the price. Your sign turned out awesome as well.
  5. Pirate Tavern Sign

    Tutorials and Step-By-Step
    Awesome sign. The raised letters are a nice touch adding to the dimension. I take the lazy approach by cutting out a paper stencil also using the Pieces of Eight font and then airbrushing with acrylic paint. Many signs of that era were simply painted. But I may have to raise my bar and try...

    Halloween Props
    LED stuff has become so cheap I don't bother with too many DIY circuit builds anymore. Amazon has this RF dimmer for $6 shipped free rated at 2x the amps and it allows you to get near the lights to see the effect while you make the adjustments with the dimmer module mounted in a safe dry...

    At the price of fuel these days I think you could go to a fence fabricator and have them weld up a cage cheaper than a road trip would cost you.

    Thanks I wish I could ship them for to free who ever wanted one because the rest will end up in the recycle. But it would be $$$ because of the weight.

    Large metal cage I have several of these available to me but I think they are just to big and heavy to take home and store. But they would make great props. I'm thinking jail for my pirate scene.

  14. Electronic/Software: 3 axis skull servo power help.

    Halloween Props
    I am using VSA. Nothing in the VSA settings has been changed. When I hook the servos back up to the original power supply in the PC they perform perfectly. then if I hook them up to the new PC power supply that I mounted in the new control box with the SSC32 and relay board they act up. Nothing...
  15. Electronic/Software: 3 axis skull servo power help.

    Halloween Props
    OK I don't usually ask for help but my servo savvy is not so great when it comes to trouble. I have had my skulls servo motors powered by a tap into the 5 volt line of the PC's power supply that is dedicated to running the routines. I decided to build a dedicated PC power supply in a control...
