  1. Mechanical: Animatronic Toe Pincher help

    Halloween Props
    I have all the components needed to lift the lid of my toe pincher, speed controller wiper motor and all. I just need suggestions on how I should go about lifting the lid itself. Should I build a circular type cog that drops on one side? And if so, does any one have a picture or blueprint handy...

    Halloween Props
    I've been meaning to make a few coffins for years, never got around to it, last month I found a local factory that put out their old pallets and decided with such a wonderful source of wood I really needed to get started. First a ground breaker coffin to cut my teeth on. With that...

  5. Prop Showcase: Toe Pincher

    Halloween Props
    This was a real challenge. I like the look of the old toe pincher coffins. I especially love the ones that flair out from the base. I searched everywhere for a pattern that listed all the proper angles to make one but never was able to find one. So, I had to wing it. It took an entire day...

  10. Prop Showcase: What I do on Sundays ... AKA My Coffin Build

    Halloween Props
    Well, I just got finished with my newest prop build. I've been wanting to make a coffin for some time now, but I never thought I could pull it off. It looked way too intimidating. Boy, was I wrong! It is actually way easier than it looks. I have had Scare FX's tutorial on how to make them...
  11. Prop Showcase: Ultra Cheap & Easy Unearthed Coffins

    Halloween Props
    This is my first post her so I hope I do it right. Being a DJ I recently noticed that my speaker boxes oddly resemble the shape or top of an old Toe pincher or coffin of some sort. So I decided to paint them with some wood grain effects and see what it would look like. Here are the pics...
