    A wiper motor is normally powered by a car battery, right? If you want to use it with a prop, does that mean you have to connect it to a battery? Can it run on household current? Thanks.

    By using an extension cord as the basis of this project it not only allows you to plug any light into it, but more importantly the extension cord give you the ability to plug two lamps (bulbs) into the cord. I use two 25 watt bulbs (red or red and yellow?) and a 5A fuse. Total construction time...

    This is yet another orphan how-to, unfortunately I never recorded who the original creator of this one was: I saw these web guns for sale on various websites and they aren't that cheap. After reading up on them I figured it was time I made one. I'm going to keep these instruction brief since...

    The setup worked a couple years ago. I tested the motor with a car battery and it works. I also put the meter on the outputs of the computer power supply and I get 5 volts on the red and 12 on the yellow. When I connect the motor to the power supply the motor doesn't turn at all, I measured with...

    I have several store props that are a mix of sound or motion triggered. All are powered by AA batteries. They are near each other, and I'd like trigger them simultaneously via PIR. I happen to own a 12V 4CH Channel Wireless Remote Control Switch. Is there any way to connect the props to the...

    Hello- I'm trying to make a sitting scarecrow prop work from a remote trigger. The trigger is just a relay with a remote control. I've done this before with other props (just yesterday the jumping spider) but I can't figure out what I'm missing with this one. I expected to use a 3.5mm audio...

    Does anyone know where I can buy prop stands? I’m having a hard time finding any online. I am referring to the tree stand type of prop indicated in the picture below. I bought a prop and it was missing the center piece that connects all of the feet together. I suppose if there are other types of...

  13. Halloween Props
    Hi all. I was wondering if anyone has or could point me in the direction of a tutorial to connect a step pad to a battery operated prop that doesn't have one of those 'try me' buttons to connect to. I have read that it can be wired to the 'on' switch but as I'm quite the novice and have no...

    Hi everyone. I am looking for help with a prop I am making at the moment. It is a small hand operated morse code/telegraph machine. My question is how to make the unit move up and down in a random way, to simulate the original action, as discreetly as possible. My initial thinking was to...

    Hey everyone! Recently, I purchased a talking, animated grim reaper prop from my local Halloween store. (I'm brand new to the forums so I can't post a link to the video yet, but search YouTube for "Winged Reaper Ultimate Animated Prop" ) I absolutely love him. The problem is that the attached...

    I bought a foam filled attack dog (well, front half of a dog anyway) from Fright Props and I'm looking for suggestions on how to attach it to a cylinder. I want the dog to thrust forward via pneumatic cylinder, but I'm unsure how to fasten the cylinder to the foam prop. Any suggestions?
