  1. Mechanical: Motor movements and prop ideas

    Halloween Props
    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
  2. Mechanical: Shaking Box

    Halloween Props
    Okay, I have a really big box. It is cardboard, but I could dress it up a little. It is heavy and thick and sits on a pallet. Dimensions are probably 3.5x3.5 and 5.5ft tall. What is the easiest way to make it shake with a 'do not open, dangerous animal inside' type of vibe? (In my head it...

  5. Mechanical: making an item float up and down?

    Halloween Props

I have self rocking chairs and cribs and rocking horse. I also had two teddy bears that floated up and down in the middle of the room...
  6. Electronic/Software: Wanting to make dancing animated prop

    Halloween Props
    Looking for some ideas to make an electric animated prop so that I can synchronize it's movements to a song. I have a Light O Rama controller that I will use to turn the motors on and off as needed to get it to move to the music. I'm basically trying to do a simplified version of the Michael...
  7. Electronic/Software: Oral-B Pulse???

    Halloween Props
    I go though one of these about every 3 or 4 weeks. I discovered as you can see they are battery operated. The problem with just changing the battery is that the brush bristles get weak and you really need to replace the whole thing. Unfortunately, I don't have a tutorial or anything like...
