    Decided on a whim today to pour some concrete in one of the silicone molds to see how it would turn out.....Found out you have to let concrete almost completely dry before removing the mold because it cracks extremely easy when it's still even a little damp....Broke the bones off on both sides of the skull by the time I removed it from the mold and the teeth stayed in the undercut section off the mold....Was still happy with the detail enough to go in the woods to find a rock to cement it...

    It would be a lot of work to turn that into a pneumatic prop....It would take 2 cylinders, one to open the lid and another to to pop the creature out....Forcing the creature into the lid to open it would destroy the creature very quickly...The hinges are not nearly strong enough, I'd probably add a piece of plywood for rigidity under the lid and the side the other cylinder is going to attach to....You'd have to remove the bottom and build a base to make it tall enough to make the mechanics work...

    Thanks!....Something weird was going on with the forum that deleted my pictures in the album right after I posted the thread....Never went back and re-uploaded anything because I was worried it would happen again.....I forget what the pics even were by now....LOL....The only video is the youtube link in my last post before this one that I can remember......ZR

    The company is thriving. There are almost 10,000 CVS stores in the US. All this is doing is addressing a handful of bad real estate decisions. The media is making a mountain out of a non-event.

    I've wanted that Scare Factory organ for probably over 10 years now.....Even if I could afford it, I already have an organ setup now that I couldn't bring myself to let go....You can't have 2 organs in a haunt but I keep looking for the Scare Factory organ....It's madness!....ZR

    I've never used Marketplace but I've been watching a ScareFactory organ in Alliance Ohio every day, all week It's a 4 hour trip 1 way and I don't have $1000 to blow on Halloween.....This would match my ScareFactory fireplace perfect!.....Somebody buy it already so I can quit agonizing over it....LOL....ZR

    To be clear, I wasn't suggesting 3d printing as the solution in this case....If someone doesn't already have a 3d printer to begin with, it's not practical at all but since someone suggested maybe it's possible with 3d printing, I just wanted to affirm it could be done and also why I said "I just wanted to show how it is possible"....As for strength, people are making working gears all the time....The problem with using a harder substance like nylon to make a new gear is the rest of the working...

    I did a quick sketch in Fusion 360 of the main parts to show how it can be done for 3d printing....Here's a quick 20 second youtube video to show the main components.... You can make the hole any shape you want...The dimensions aren't right and I only made 1 tooth but I just wanted to show how it is possible....If 3d printing I would separate the disk with teeth and the spacer below it so you wouldn't have to use any support when printing and just...

    I have a skelly, in my hearse. She opens her casket and sings "The Worms Crawl In, The Worms Crawl Out", lays back down and closes her casket but she is from Graveyard Skulls. Do you have big plans for 2012? I'm bummed that it in the middle of the week but, we are moving in March and will hopefully get more TOT's.
    Have a good night!

    Of all of those portraits, the only one I have is the Werewolf aka "Howlin Harry"!!! Too funny! They were made by Morris Costumes years ago and they are now discontinued. If you ever sell them off, let me know LOL!
    I have heard of Beyond the Grave productions, they are expensive though and I have never personally ordered from them. I have had my eye on those oblisk stones, but $750+shipping is a bit steep. Another good one is:

    They have some cool stuff and the prices are reasonable!
