  1. Fog machine not pumping any juice

    Halloween Props
    Hey everyone, this is my first post on here but I assume if anyone can help me with this it's you all! So I got a dog machine from a friend and have been trying to fix it. It heats up and I can hear a hum when I activate it, but it never sucks any juice up. I tried using some fog juice cleaner...
  2. Steamtown Gotham 2019

    General Halloween
    So it's that time. I debated for quite some time if I wanted to do a midweek setup this year with Halloween being on a Thursday. But we're locked in to having it up this year with our application to be on the SoCal Hauntlist. These are some pics from the setup from last year. This is the...
  3. Fog: Chauvet 1400

    Halloween Props
    I'm looking for a new fog machine. Right now there are several vendors that have factory refurbished Chauvet 1400s with a timer for $120. The 1400 is recently discontinued. It's a great price for a pretty high capacity machine. Does anyone have one, and if so how do you like it? Thanks!
  4. Fog: Fog Machine timer

    Halloween Props
    Hi Forum, i recently got an el-cheapo fog machine (220V) to use this year for halloween - it has a wireless remote etc.. but i was seeking a timer remote (so i can leave it to do its fog stuff) its fitted with a 3 pin XLR but most timers are 5 pin- so a bit lost- given its 3 pin i cant...
  5. Looking for any FOG MACHINE props

    Wanted to Buy
    Good afternoon, I am in search of any cool full-size animatronics or props that feature a fog machine hook-up (or with it built-in). I do not mind if it is brand new or in used condition. I am willing to buy or trade for any cool full-size animatronics or props with a fog-machine hook-up (or...
  6. Fog: INDOOR fog machine

    Halloween Props
    What would your recommendation for the best INDOOR fog machine be? Ideally something that isn't going to set off my smoke detectors... that's the issue I ran into with the one I purchased from Spirit a few years back. I'd love to have a fog machine set up in our living room. The ceilings are...
  7. Fog: Hacking a Fog Machine [video]

    Halloween Props
    I decided to crack open a cheapo fog machine and rewire it to be controlled by an Arduino. This way I can trigger it as part of the timing or from a sensor of some kind (used a basic PIR sensor in this video).

  9. Fog: Measuring fog density?

    Halloween Props
    Is there an inexpensive tool that can measure fog density from a fog machine? Although fog machines provide details of their output, such as cubic feet per minute (cfm), I want to measure density as the fog travels thru a PVC pipe that has holes every 6 inches. The further down the pipe you go...
  10. Ducting fog into 2 separate channels

    Halloween Props
    Hello everyone. I have been a member of this forum for about a year reading many threads on a variety of topics. I am in the process of planning my Halloween setup in October and am in need of advice and recommendations. Background I live in a home that has a front yard about 70 ft by 30 ft...
  11. Atmosphere Effects: Fog Machine and Flaming Cauldron 'Bonfire" Prop

    Halloween Props
    Not quite finished, but it's coming along well. Originally I had planned to build a fire prop based around a mist maker, only to discover that a single-head mister doesn't put out nearly enough volume for that sort of thing. Nor do 3 of them, at least the 3 that I own. So, I moved on to the fog...

    I want to purchase a new fog machine. i would like the chauvet 1301. I just keep reading the reviews about them on amazon and really wonder if they are worth the money. I just do not want to waste money. please advise.
  13. Fog: Fog Machine Storage

    Halloween Props
    I'm looking for some advice on fog machine storage. I'm a yearly haunter, so my fog machine sits, unused, until October. Right now, my fog machines (various Chauvets) only last about two years. I follow the directions Froggy's but am wondering if I'm doing something wrong. In particular, should...
  14. Suggestions for Automated/motion sensor gate...

    Hi Group! I've had this idea for about a year now but haven't been able to see it come to fruition. I'd like to create a "Haunted Gate" into my Halloween Party using these three elements: 1) Motion Sensor/timer 2)Fog 3)Hologram My idea is based off of AtmosFEARfx Holograms. I would like to...
  15. Fog: Fog chiller output through 25' of 4" PVC

    Halloween Props
    Hello all, I'm getting my first fog machine soon and I have this idea of running the output from the fog chiller box through about 25' or 30' of 4" PVC pipe. The pipe would have 1" holes drilled through it every foot and go along the edge of my front porch to ensure even distribution of the...
  16. Fog: 400W fog machine...any chance?

    Halloween Props
    Hey all, I'm about to start working on a fog chiller (large, outdoor trash can size) and trying to decide if I should be shopping for a fog machine to replace the one I have. My goal is to do a nice ground fog effect in our front yard this year. I picked up up a 400w model from Spirit a few...
  17. Electronic/Software: Fog machine + LED = flame thrower?

    Halloween Props
    A few days ago, I came across a video of a moving head with a built-in fog machine. The light shining through the plume of smoke made it look like a flame thrower, the effect was pretty realistic. Of course, this thing is pretty expensive (about 2000 euro), but I think it wouldn't be too hard to...
  18. Fantastic fog this year - share your successes here

    General Halloween
    For the first time in the three years that I've been using foggers, I finally got it exactly as I wanted. It seems as though the stars need to align for this sort of thing to happen, so I'd be interested in hearing if anyone else had similar successes. Here's a clip of my fogged flower bed...
  19. Fog: Both fog machines dead...coil issues?

    Halloween Props
    I know everyone is busy prepping for this evening but I'm hoping someone has some insight as to why my fog machines aren't working. Pulled them both out of storage and when I press the fog button, they click (relay works) and hum (not vibrate like usual) but nothing happens. I disassembled the...
  20. Other: Fog machines and their outputs, video, etc

    Halloween Props
    Hi all, I often read posts where people are looking for fog machines, their output capabilities, fog juice used, costs, etc. I was thinking if possible a new thread (with a better name than this one) could be used for those of us willing to post some video of specific fog machines, settings...
