    Halloween Props
    It's been waaaaay too long. But my dream finally did come true: almost 2 yrs ago I moved from the Buckle of the Bible Belt in Raleigh NC to... get this... about a 15 minute drive to the Magic Kingdom + thus my own persona pilgrimage spot: The Haunted Mansion. Wife & I are Gold Annual...
  2. Lighting: Solar versus Low voltage

    Halloween Props
    Currently most of my lighting is driven by low voltage power or by 110 AC. However I was wondering if anyone has tried using mostly solar lights. I see advantages and disadvantages of each but I wanted to start a discussion. Powering the lights with Low voltage or AC requires many more wires...

    Hey guys, quick question, I may be able to pick up a vintage power supply for cheap, output voltage says 13.5v DC, 3A max continuous, 5A peak. Will that run a wiper motor?

  8. Electronic/Software: Will powering a 12V wiper motor with a 16V power supply cause problems?

    Halloween Props
    Probably a simple question, but I googled around for a bit and couldn't find a conclusive answer. The title pretty much says it all - I picked up a 12V DC wiper motor today for a prop that I'm planning to build, and the only power supply I could find lying around my house was rated at 16V / 6A...
  9. Lighting: LED question

    Halloween Props
    I got some little zombie heads from a forum member. They change from red to green to blue to white. Is this done by varying the voltage or is it voodoo.
