  2. Old member, new introduction

    Member Introduction
    I just realized I've never introduced myself on here even though I've been a member for several years. I'm a software engineer (electrical engineer by education) who loves to tinker with stuff and build props from scratch, and I've been doing a yard haunt for 15 years or so. I recently moved...

  5. Pneumatic: Compressor Question

    Halloween Props
    A 3 gallon "pancake" style for $40 is a pretty good compressor for a beginner. They're pretty compact, and you can always upgrade later if you decide to get more involved with pneumatics. As for pressure, 100psi is more than enough in most cases ... I ran my Crate Beast prop at 40psi this...

  8. Pneumatic: Newbie to propbuilding and have some questions

    Halloween Props
    Let me try to answer some of your questions: 1. Single action cylinders should work fine. The air entering the cylinder extends the rod, and releasing the pressure allows gravity to retract the rod. The stroke does not need to be very long; I had great success with only 1" stroke. A longer...
  9. Prop Showcase: Video of 3-axis skulls in action

    Halloween Props
    I've finally put up some video of my 3-axis skulls doing "Thriller". I apologize for the really poor video quality, but hopefully you can get an idea of what it looked like in real life. For a night time view, go to http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7UeccKGTtMg A daylight version is at...
