    Has anyone left vinegar in their fog machine? I left vinegar in mine last year and now its not working. The pump comes on but doesn't pump fluid. I took the pump apart and cleaned it up still nothing. The only thing I can figure is the vinegar messed the seals up. Just a last effort to see if...

    Hello fellow Halloween Fans! Been a member for a few years but rarely ever post.........come to think of it this might be the first. I have been inactive the past few years for Halloween because I was renting an apartment. Well I finally got back into a house and want to do some cool things...

    We recently purchased a house with a large oak tree in front. I am expanding my cemetary this year and will be using some fog machines and AtmosFX. However, I am at a lost at what to put around the tree. I personally don't like the witches or ghosts in a circle you see everywhere. Just...

    I've wanted to do a ghost train for a while now and this year it's happening. :) The majority of the build is 2x2's and 1/4 subfloor mahogany ply. These materials are keeping down both the weight and cost of the build. The main boiler is just 2 4' diameter circles strung together with 2x2's and...

    There has been a big increase in the technology used in LED bulbs over the past few years, in that many are now dimmable. Does anyone know if these dimmable bulbs can be successfully used with lightning machines? We run two 500w Halogen floods outside, which do a great job for producing the...

    I remember when I first saw "Maximum Overdrive" as a kid in 1986 and after seeing it was afraid to use machines and saws in shop class and the garage lol. I even thought cars would come to life and run me over. That same feeling is still with me today even lol. I have had many instances where it...

    Hey, I'm not sure if this is the best place to put this info but I thought it probably fits here better than anyplace else. I know there is a lot of information on how to fix non-working fog machines but I have never seen this info. I apologize if I missed it in another post. Anyway, I was...

    I was looking on flea bay and they have a package deal with 2 of these fog machines for$124.99. This American DJ Co. are they a good Co. to buy from with good products? I got out my 2 - 1000W smoke machines and my 1 - 400W smoke machine from JUNK Spirit Halloween store from last year and they...

    Here is my first and probably only prop of the year. When finished, it will be one of those "Claw Machines" you see at the arcade, except with a twist.

    I was hoping to fire up the fog machine today and see how everything works with the timer and the new cauldron setup. I've always emptied my fog machines at the end of the season but never really cleaned them out. This one is brand new and I was wondering if I could test it out today and then...

    I have wasted a lot of money buying fog machines that do not last for longer than 2 or 3 days. I don't know if I'm doing something wrong or buying a crappy fog machine. So with that said, what is the best fog machine to buy? I'm want the fog to hug the ground, I know I can build a chill box...

    So recently both of my fog machines died on me. Thought it just needed a cleaning but at the end discovered the pumps to be toast. Does anyone have any suggestions where I can buy replacement pumps for fog machines. They were both bought at Spirit so nothing high end price of fog machine but...

    In my continuing quest to deploy my artificial snow machine(s) during song intermissions (moments of no sound or light) without using a cheater plug, I'm now wondering about those remote controlled power strips you see for sale during the holidays. Some are just pure on / off. And some are also...

    I bought a secondhand fog machine recently, tested it and it seems to work fine :) I want to set it up on my landing upstairs tomorrow night (possibly with a chiller but that remains to be seen) but it's carpeted up there. The machine seems to get pretty hot. Can I just stand it on a box or...

    Ive been a very busy bee this 2014. Here is my two acre yard decorated this year. I designed the light plan the two columns, the obelisk and a few other props. Bought 4 animatronics plus two static characters about 30 tombstones just about everywhere and a hand full of accent props. Two fog...
