  1. SMT LED removed and replaced with... ?

    Off-Topic Stuff
    I have a vape lighter I'm repurposing, and it has two surface mount LEDs that indicate two of its operating conditions. One LED indicates ready to light, the second lights when the coil is being powered. I don't need either LEDs and want to simply remove them, but not knowing the circuitry, I'm...
  2. Static: Removing sticker from bottles?

    Halloween Props
    I am making some potions and wanted to use like an old soy sauce bottle. I removed the sticker off but it leaves that glue behind. Anyone have any good tips to remove that glue off?
  3. Electronic/Software: Spirit Graveyard Lantern Hack-My first hack!

    Halloween Props
    On an earlier thread I asked if anyone knew how to make the sound activated Spirt Halloween Graveyard Lanterns stay constantly lit instead of the momenary light after being activated by sound. A few replies, but nothing concrete on how to do it, so I decided to take it apart myself and see what...
  4. Pneumatic: Startle: Jumping spider

    Halloween Props
    This is a medium sized, rubber spider that is resting on a hidden air solenoid nozzle. When the victim presses a button on the control panel, the solenoid is activated and shoots the spider towards them. It’s about 90 psi, from a small air compressor. Added effect: place a glass dome lid...
  5. Prop Showcase: Gate Pillars - Lightweight and Easy to Store

    Halloween Props

  6. Tacking power cords to lawn?

    General Halloween
    I have a couple hundred feet of cords I need to tack to lawn to prevent most tripping (I don't intend for people to be walking over them, but still). I need to put down scores of things that are both easy to install and remove, and ideally won't stab someone or wreck my lawnmower if I miss some...
  7. Podcast that might interest some

    Off-Topic Stuff
    Ok, well this is hard for me to write because I'm not one to put my own creativeness (besides Costumes and haunts) out for the world to see, but I like you guys and you're not too harsh and very supportive. I'm throwing this under off-topic because if it dies in a thread that's fine, its not...

  9. Wouldn't miss it if Halloween lost…

    General Halloween
    Okay — I didn't see this in a search of the forums, so I thought I'd pose the question: Is there something you wouldn't miss from Halloween if it went away for good? There is no limit on the subject matter. It can be anything from jack-o-lanterns to the Monster Mash.
