fog machine

  1. 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...

    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...

    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...

    This is my latest prop. I was angle to score quite a bit of 3" styrofoam sheets for a good price. So I wanted to make a tomb for my first graveyard, I decided to incorporate a fog chiller in the tomb. It works great and I'm excited to use it for Halloween. Please watch my videos on you tube...

    Hello again all. It's great to have another Halloween sneaking up on us again. I found this site last year while making my first and failed attempt at creating a foggy front yard. I got a late start, yet still tried about 5 different machines ranging from 400 to 900 watts that all fell short...

    Hi folks, I am a new HalloweenForum member, and have been a bit puzzled by something that I hope someone may be able to give me some guidance on. I picked up a Chauvet Hurricane 1101 last year for our 2014 haunt and have been happy with all but one aspect: the lack of DMX512 control. For this...

    Hello everyone I was busy setting up my haunt and had a brain fart. I realized the AAA battery changes every 15 minutes last year for the green laser pointer pens that were attached to the spinning mirror on my laser vortex. Well to make a long story short, I had a red green stage laser...

    My 2013 Sp00ktacular Halloween display in Florida went off "Almost" Flawless lol Here is a link to the video I said I would post. Working on tracking down the neighbors with photos and video and will post more soon. Screaming kids made it worth the fun. The shocking flashing fuse panel was the...
  10. General Halloween
    95% rain today and has been since yesterday. Pneumatic wasn't in rain but selenide just won't fire the lunger up. Air compressor won't turn on so using backup tool one. Hit head on the door. Thumb swollen from hammer hit. PVC people falling over. Can handle all that but my question is...

    I have a ground fogger (it doesn't have a brand name anywhere on it, it only says "ground fogger" on the side) that needs some TLC. When I pulled it off the shelf, I realized there was still juice in the bottle (it wasn't me, I swear!) so I emptied it out and put some water in it to steam it...

    Ok guys. I use my fog machines year round. I dj. I've searched the web and can't find an explanation for this. Here is my problem. I have two fog machines. One is on a timer, the other we just use the control that came with it. The one with timer I have it set to go off every 35-45 seconds with...

    Anyone Own Any Antari Products? How Are They? I'm Thinking About Getting An Antari F-80Z Fog Machine. Found A 700 Watt One For Around $50.

    Seeing how much the trick-or-treaters enjoyed the cheap-o 400 watt fogger we'd used the first few years in our haunt, we imagined what it would be like if we tried for a more realistic effect. We decided that 2012 should be all about fog - dense, low-lying fog. This could only be achieved with...

    [Hey halloweeners! I have a question about using a fog machine inside my house. The year before last we tried do have it indoors but the smoke detector that is hooked up with our house alarm went off and ofcourse the fire fighters came!!! lol So Im wondering if any of you guys have this problem...

    Hey all. I have an idea for a fog chiller, but need some help to get it to work. Here's what I want to do: I have a mini-fridge from college, and would like to weld old aluminum siding to the cooling unit inside the unit. I would cut holes at random places in the aluminum allowing air flow...

    Well, tonight was the perfect night for cemetery fog. The air was slightly warm and there was no wind. I was able to make some really creepy fog without any ice in the chiller. I have just a couple more projects and finishing touches that I want to complete before our first "lights on" night...

    Hi Everyone, Just wanted to get some opinions on really good Fog Machine. My Lite FX 1200 watt fogger recently blew the pump. Got a lot of use out of it and it was decent too. Now I am looking to replace it but with something a little better than your average store brand from Party City or...

    I'm trying to hack a fog machine remote for my vampire in a box. I've seen a couple tutorials on how to do this but I'm still not sure how to do it with the remote that I have. First I'm using an American DJ mini fog machine. The standard remote that comes with it is a simple switch remote. Here...

    I have 2 of the sorta crummy 400W machines. One's from Target and is 2 years old, the other is from a party store and only almost a year, but has never been used by me. The Target one used to work and did so as recently as February, but now I can't get it to even turn on, even after changing...
