    $400 plus shipping (I really don't want to get rid of but I have never displayed him and I am downsizing). He has some issues. I got three years ago from original owner, but he did not take care of his props. I tossed the box as it had some mildew. I washed all his clothes and hot-glued his...
  3. Zombitronix PVC Frame Calculator

    Tutorials and Step-By-Step
    A few years ago I ran across the "Zombitronix PVC Frame Calculator" for making PVC frame props. I copied and saved the calculator for future reference. Now It appears that since then the website for Zombitronix has been taken down and this calculator is no longer available online...

    I've been experiencing some issues when trying to create / update albums on the forum this year, so I figured instead of creating a build album this year, I might try a post instead. For 2018 to this point, we've added a new haunt sign, mausoleum, vine lanterns, and the 'witching well'. All...

    Halloween Props
    My curtains want to bounce 1/2 open. I have taken the gearbox off, removed the motor and inspected the "wandering gear". Mine appears to be stationary.

    I have about a dozen props that all need sound and motion to trigger them. Most of them have issues or when things get loud Halloween night, none of them go off. I have to go around spotting them with a flashlight or clap my hands to trigger them. Most of them have a demo input for the foot pad...

    Halloween Props
    Howdy all! Started assembling my Home Depot horse skeleton this morning in the hopes of getting some corpsing done. Has anyone else had issues getting the neck to attach to the ribcage? I can't seem to get it all the way in (that's what he said) to latch into place. At this point I'm tempted...

  19. Theft from Displays

    General Halloween
    I am new here and fairly new to decorating my home. I'm in the UK, and so decorations tend to go up on or very near to the 31st. However, I notice that many US members have their haunts set up much earlier. My question do any of you have any issues with theft or vandalism, as I am very sure...
