motors

  1. Wanted to Buy
    I am in search of someone who has or can program a simple circuit board that when power is received, it will move a motor back and forth in intervals of about three seconds (it can be slightly shorter or longer). If anyone has a circuit board of this nature, or can program one, please let me...

    It's been waaaaay too long. But my dream finally did come true: almost 2 yrs ago I moved from the Buckle of the Bible Belt in Raleigh NC to... get this... about a 15 minute drive to the Magic Kingdom + thus my own persona pilgrimage spot: The Haunted Mansion. Wife & I are Gold Annual...

    VIDEO: https://youtu.be/fTJSfBQC-WI This a project I actually completed for Halloween 2017, but have been lax in finding the time to take some decent pics and shoot a video of it in action. I always loved the Grave-Digging Skeleton, but always wondered if I could re-engineer it in a new way...

    I rely on so many of you to guide my prop builds, and this thread will be no different. This year two of my props had motors that failed, and I'm pretty sure it was our fault for asking them to do something they weren't meant to do. I'm hoping that with a bit of guidance, we can set them up...

    Looking to do a Leering Skeleton prop and something else. I already invested in one wiper motor, 12 volt power and speed control. Looking to go a cheaper route for the second one. I read the cheap synchronous motors are good but get hot???? It will need to run for 4 hours straight. Would...

    Any good website or thread here shows a bunch of motor movement ideas, particularly electric motors and props? Looking for ideas and linkage ideas to start making props for 2019. Been out of the Haunted house hobby for 9 years. Maybe air powered too, just not sure. Thanks
  12. Halloween Props
    Hard to believe but this is my 20 pneumatic prop So I wanted to connect a little bit more with some of the teens/adults so I decided to pull this from the Dark Souls video game series. This skeleton wheel is a PITA in this game. For those who do not know it is a spiked wheel with a skeleton...
  13. Halloween Props
    Hey all, Kinda looking/searching into more animatronic props lately (building myself) and wanna get more into electrical and motors, etc. I created this prop this year, kinda like tombstone, built outta foam and wood. Maybe weights 20lbs or so. I was thinking of raising it up and down. So...
  14. Halloween Props
    Does any one have a good way of attaching an arm to a basic wiper motor like you would get on monster guts? I need a longer arm than the ones provided. I've tried attaching metal bars that I have drilled a hole in. Then I will use washers and a nut and hope to get enough compression to hold the...

    Has anyone used a can opener motor to run their props ? I'm looking to make a coffin puller and a grave digger plus some smaller props. Hubby believes a can opener motor would be better than a windshield motor, especially since it already has a plug. What do you guys think ?

    Changed my mind.
  17. Halloween Props
    I have two 24V DC motors (electric wheelchair motors) that need to operate at the same time, but perform independently from one-another (move at different speeds and/or in different directions, for example). I need to be able to record the exact motions of the two motors for a preferable...

    Hi there I would like to make a Grave Stone Popper like this guy did. I was wondering if this set of Motors I found on Amazon would work? https://www.amazon.ca/Yeeco-Electric-Torque-Engine-Machinery/dp/B072HDDSHG/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1508712958&sr=8-1&keywords=motors&th=1 If not do you guys...

    Hi there I am working on a AXWORTHY flying ghost project right now and need some advice/help on what I should get for a motor and speed controller? I found this set of motors on Amazon...

    How do you guys bind something to an electric motor's rotating stud? I've got a gear motor I'd like to turn into a lever to push a prop. I always think there must be some hardware made for this, but don't even know what to google. Or do you all just have welders, lol?
