    Halloween Props

  2. Deathlord's Air Trigger

    Tutorials and Step-By-Step
    In the "spirit" of Freddie's Girl's Obelisk build file, I'd like to post up a lost how-to from Death Lord's site which is no longer online. This is Death Lord's Air Trigger, the text is the exact text from his how-to: In November of 2002 I decided to develop an air cannon using a washing...
  3. Is my Antari SP-35A pump missing check valve?

    Halloween Props
    Hello All, Not sure if this is the right place to post, but seemed to fit best. I've picked up an Antari ICE 100 low ground fog machine and the pump works, but is the devil to get primed and once it does, it doesn't look like it has the flow it should.
