  1. Halloween Props
    Hi all I recently bought two props that I didn't realize were only sound activated. They turn on when I turn on the power so I am wondering if anyone has played with converting something like this to a timer activation. I've been searching but can't find anything that I can splice inline to do...

The prop is complete but the previous owner removed the plug in wiring pins from the circuit board to disassemble for storage. I was curious if anyone has this prop and can take a picture of the circuit...

    Once upon a time I had a software audio player that let you give it a list of effects and a list of ambient files and it would play them. Some of the settings let you randomize the time between, left/right fade, volume, etc. I have not been able to find it again. Anyone here recall something...

    Hi All, This is my first year in trying animated props. I looked at a lot of videos and forums and decided to try using a wiper motor. Problem is I can't get it to power on at all when connected directly to a power supply. Here's some info: Motor: part number REPJ361105 bought from ebay Power...

    I have a question for the more electrically inclined. I have an outlet outside the house for plugging in my Halloween decorations but the trouble is that I need to run multiple extension chords and then multi plugs to each individual item. I also have some items that are running on 12 V and 5 V...

    Okay so another person posted recently that they were having some issues with their motor not working right while hooked up to their power supply. I am having the same problem. The motor shaft turns when hooked up, but turns very slowly and more of a jerking than an actual turning. I just...

    I know what you're thinking. Really Dustin? Another Arduino post? Yes, sadly I do have another problem that I need some help with.
