  1. Mechanical: Wiper motor quick popup

    Halloween Props
    I was playing around with linkage simulator and stumbled across this configuration. It would really work well with a Picovolt where you can set it start when it is laying down and it would stop then go in reverse back to the laying position. Or let it go ahead and just make one complete turn...

    Halloween Props
    I looked at my hammock stand and saw a Pirate ship - I had PVC laying around as well as old canvas paint "tarps" . I used torn bed sheets for the sails. I will be adding a fog machine, audio soundtrack for ocean waves, creaky sounds and Pirates as well as torches inside the ship for extra...
  4. Mechanical: Slow movement on a prop

    Halloween Props

  6. Mechanical: Grave grabber

    Halloween Props
    Started working on a grave grabber a couple days ago and here's what I've gotten done so far. It's an old foot massager (free from my sister) and a bunch of scrap from the garage. I'm thinking of having something laying across it to look like it's being crushed, but not sure what yet.

  8. Mechanical: Motors... (as I tear out my hair)

    Halloween Props
    OK - :mad: I am loosing my mind on this. I spent about 10 hours over the last week reading, watching, calculating, and learning all about Torque, wattage, RPMs, N-m*8.085, and prop building. (you should see the spread sheet) Unfortunately, I feel little closer to an understanding of what one...
