  1. Party Ideas. Experiences and Recipes

    This is an animated Gravedigger prop I made. It's mostly recycled from old props and molds I had in the garage, but I animated it in the "leering ghost" kind of way (bent PVC attached to upper body and running on a slow window motor). I attached mine to the window roller motor with Home Depot...

    So, I've been kinda dormant with building for a while. This year I decided to go big or go home:) Early September I got the idea to do a crypt wall over the garage door, thanks to others on here. Well then I decided to up the anti a little bit and add a little "shock" factor. So, I started...

    2 years ago we had a hanging guy in one of the silo entrances operated by air, Small compressor couldn't keep up. I decided to try a wiper motor drive . It seems to work really well.
