    I just picked up a new Twitch today but it did not have the power supply. Can some one tell me what the power supply rating is. Thank you

    OK, let’s get started with our Board of Chuckie (BoC) DMX tutorial. This year, I switched over to DMX to run my Skeleton Quartet that I call Sindy Skinless and the Decomposers. It GREATLY reduced the wiring needed, improved the stability of the servos and made setting up and tearing down a 10...

    I was given a large Gemmy spirit ball, the genie, because it stopped working. It like no power whatsoever is getting to it. I've tried both AC and DC power and nothing. Has anyone had this problem, and is there a fix to it? thanks in advance!

    We built this inside one of our cars that we parked along the street. It's triggered with an RF remote that plugs into a power inverter in the car. Some notes about construction: Human skulls from Target, geared DC motors, sheet of plywood, a power supply for the motors (we used an adjustable...

    I just tried out something, and the visual effect is cool enough that I thought someone else might get some use out of it before tomorrow is done. No time to post pictures tonight, too much to build still. (sorry) But I hope you find it useful. ------------------------------- Steampunk...

    For the second time this year both me and the wife got new debit cards sent to us because of security breaches where we shop. No biggie right? No biggie unless your auto-drafts are set through your debit cards rather than directly through your financial institution for security AND you have...

    Hello, I have two cheap ($1) strobe lights from the Dollar Tree. I was wondering if anyone knew of a way I could butcher - I mean - "politely modify" them to sync their strobe timing together, as well as their power switch? My setup - I am filming a short, and when the demon pops out, I would...

    I have no experience with them, but I was thinking of making a laser vortex with a little mirror and cooling fan. Can anyone tell me what power of laser I should be considering? Or, can you point me to a good inexpensive laser to purchase for such a project?

    Well, this year I redid my electric generation station for the Haunted Forest. A couple of years ago I make a static prop for a power station with a static PVC figure for the electrician. I promised Tera that I would post a photo of the power station transformer but I just never got around to...

    So I setup my Grandfather clock today and I'm getting some annoying audio hum intermittently. When the audio is running the hum disappears but comes back again when nothing is playing. The clock has a lot of moving parts, it runs a servo for a talking skull pendulum using a Scary Terry board...

    Hi all, I have been using computer power supplies to run my wiper motor props for a few years now, and finally decided to try and remote my power supply and run out low voltage cables to the props. I wanted to control 2 different props so I set up a box with two voltages in it, a 12V and a...

    A few years ago I made LED spotlights out of the little finger LED toys and having them connect up to a USB hub. I had gotten the idea from a thread started here. For some reason even though I used the same power supply and resistors for all of them they did not have the same uniform...

    SOLD I built this prop last year for my haunt. But this year decided it doesn't really fit into my over all theme. So I'm seeing if anyone is in need of a mummy popup. ;) The frame is built from 3/4" pvc. It uses a 1 1/16" bore, 4" stroke, double acting cylinder. A 12v 4 way, 5 port solenoid...

    I have about 15 prop controllers. 2 sets of the controllers are setting each other off or going off on a seeming separate circuit. The controllers are pretty rock solid and I'm very pleased with them--but I'm having this issue. I reduced one issue by placing one controller on a separate...

    Hi all, Any ideas on how to integrate a fog machine into a stalk around costume? The costume is built on a backpack frame which could easily hold a small machine, and the hoses would be easy to run. I just need ideas to address the power source. If I can make this happen it may be the...

    Does anyone know if the motor uses AC or DC... I can't find the power specs for the blasted things! http://www.kindys.com/products/decorating-accessories/replacement-motors/replacement-motor-48-animated-buck

    Hopefully someone knows the answer to this. So I've got a monster guts wiper motor - works great when hooked directly to the power supply. I bought and connected a PWM DC Motor Speed Controller - checked to make sure the polarity is correct - seems obvious that it is connected AFTER the power...
