fog machine

  1. General Halloween
    Has anyone had any issues while working for a haunt and you have young workers that get asthma attacks from fog constantly being sprayed in a open area?

    A HUGE hurdle with using a fog machine outdoors is, as we all know, wind. Even the smallest breeze can fluff up an awesome effect. So I was thinking, what if I "trapped" the fog on the ground? My idea is this - our display this year will utilize the "Laser Swamp" effect. What I want to do is...

    So, my fogger seems to be overheating after producing less than impressive clouds. I've removed the cover and its very hot to the touch inside and I can see some smoke it seems. Where might I be able to find replacement parts? Or what kind of shop might repair these? Locating these things is...

    I'm building a fog distribution system using flexible tubing. Does anyone know if the size of the tube (used for distribution) matters? I would like the tubing to be large enough to slide frozen water bottles into therefore the tube would need to be at least 3"+ in diameter. I will be using a...

    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...

    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...

    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!

    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...
  9. 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...

    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...

    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).

    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...

    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...

    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'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...

    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...

    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...

    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...
