    we have the front end of a car and will trigger the horn and lights to come on when people walk by. My question... will a 12V 10A power supply power the 4 headlights and the horn on this car? If so, great because then I know I can use the picoboo controller I have. If not, I may need to use...

    Hi, new here and need some help with a motor I purchased from ebay for my cauldron creep head. It's a 110v, 5rpm synchronous motor. I am not sure how to power it. I have connected it directly to 110v power with a cord and to a motor controller but neither worked. Any help appreciated!

    I just purchased 2 motors from monster guts and both are acting the same. When I plug them into the power supply they just go bump, bump, bump. They don't actually spin. My first through is they don't have enough amps to turn the motor and get it started, but they are 12V/6A power supplies I...

    Every year I add more and more lights, foggers, projectors, and pneumatics to my party. Last year I had a power outage twice during my party, I had to spend 20min resetting everything. I finally plugged a compressor into another outlet and was ok the rest of the night. Well this year I have even...

    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...

    Found some great inspiration with costumes, haunts, creatures, makeup, food & crafts! :D Hello! I stumbled across some Halloween inspiration links today & thought I'd share. They could fit into a lot of categories, but it's a lot of great eye-candy if you have a few minutes to take a look...

    Ok here it is finally. After a few weeks of frustration and having to walk away from it several times I figured it out. Everything i seen online for converting a compaq power supply seemed that noone could get it to turn on and work like a standard ATX power supply. Took me a while but...

    I have a display in the woods that I wanted to have a few flood lights on. I can't get electricity out there. I've read about power inverters running off a battery. Has anyone used one and would a 800w inverter be enough to run lights for a few hours? I appreciate any suggestions?

    So, with all our updating and fixing up and testing, we discovered that some of our motion sensors were getting fried! :( As it turns out, the culprit was the power supply (or so it seems, anyway). For whatever reason, the power supply must be pumping out a voltage spike or something that was...

    Hi everyone! I made this laser vortex recently and currently the motor/mirror runs on a AA battery and the laser pen uses 2 AAA's. It works and looks great but I'd love to be able to plug it in and not worry about it. Any suggestions on power supplies and such? Here's a photo. Thanks!

    I have a small 6 RPM 120v AC synchronous gear motor...and I have no clue how to get power to it...do I just attach the wires to a standard outlet jack? Please see photo...it has these plugs attached to the wires that remind me of my old RC cars. The wiring diagram lists the power source being...

    I've talked about this in a few other threads but I think I'll get better results combining it all into 1. I want to find an inexpensive way to change all my 3-battery (4.5v) LED props to AC power. Everything from blinking strands to those color changing tap lights. While using an ATX power...

    Hey everyone just wanted to put some pics of my new converted power supply. I used this website web2.murraystate.edu/andy.batts/ps/powersupply.htm as a guide but made a few alterations. Instead of using binding posts and one ground I opted to use 2.1mm jacks with a positive and negative wire...

    Hey guys, I've just salvaged this computer power supply from my old pc and would like to use it to power a prop. The problem is, when i plug in the power supply nothing happens. I figure this is because the switch which would normally be located on the front of the desktop computer hasn't...
