  1. Press break, anyone?

    Off-Topic Stuff
    I'm in need of two pieces of aluminum, 18" x 4". Each needs two bends near one of its long dimension, at 7/16" and 13/16". So, basically a "J". The pieces will be used to rebuild the failing, wooden sides of a silverware drawer in the kitchen whose wood has been whittled away over the years...
  2. Halloween Treat Sacks

    General Halloween
    I am jumping on the bandwagon to give out small toys with the full size bars this year. I have already collected mini Play-Doh cans, mini stencils & erasers (will get pencils to go with them) and some Hot Wheels. I wanted to put them into little paper treat sacks - the flat "vintage style" (not...

  4. Airbrush Tombstones

    Halloween Props
    I’m thinking about getting a airbrush unit for doing tombstones and a few other items. Up to this point I have been using tinted Drilock and washing a paint over that. The problem is all the stones basically look the same. Any good techniques or tips of using a airbrush to add some character to...
  5. Electronic/Software: How to loop an Aurduino Uno?

    Halloween Props
    Is there a way to have an Uno run in a loop by jumping 2 connections, not by code, much the same way you can with a Picoboo? I'm wanting to run it with relays connected without a PIR and have the sequence run over and over? So basically when power is applied to the UNO it's starts playing the...
  6. Prop Showcase: How to make the 3 Classic Halloween Monsters work?

    Halloween Props
    I bought the 3 Classic Halloween Monsters this year through Home Depot (Werewolf, Drac & Frankenstein). They are IR props that work off of each other, but I have no idea how to set them off without having to press the button on each of their arms. Is there a hack to hook them up to step pads or...

  9. Mechanical: Know you're busy...Need some feedback.

    Halloween Props
    Although I don't post often, I follow religiously and have an opportunity to have my two worlds come together. I am currently taking a class on product formation. Being a haunter, and specifically into Pirates, I am conceptualizing a self-contained pirate cannon as a product that can be taken...

  13. Static: Mr. Chicken's Nervous ToT Zombie

    Halloween Props
    Been a while since I made a regular Halloween prop, since I haven't had a haunt of my own for a few years. I recently got an opportunity to make something, so I decided to go back to my roots with a goofy zombie. I used to do plenty of groundbreakers, but I never got to do a full figure zombie...
  14. Acrylic teeth source?

    Halloween Props
    Looking for some links people know of that sell acrylic teeth? I was thinking of ordering some bucky skeletons and I hate the molded teeth, they look fake. So basically I'd be looking for perhaps 10 sets so cheapest price or even wholesale would be best.
