    A wiper motor is normally powered by a car battery, right? If you want to use it with a prop, does that mean you have to connect it to a battery? Can it run on household current? Thanks.

These power supply's have at least 5- 12v, 8-5v and 4-3.3v leads all running with enough amperage to run any motor, arduino, servo or light setup that you have...

    I'm going to be using a wiper motor for my toe pincher coffin this year, however, I have wired my wiper motor to my power supply and the motor does not rotate smoothly, instead it seams to tick. I'm using a 12 volt 5 amp power supply and a Jeep CJ5 wiper motor, MN: PPWPM437. I'm baffled as to...

    So I was wondering if anyone's used a disco ball motor instead of a wiper motor for the Cauldron Creep? Just curious because I haven't purchased either motor yet. My fear is that the disco ball motor might be too weak to handle the weight of the stick that would be attached. Thoughts?

    I had a recent question about the motor used in my animated coffin project. It was a standard wiper motor using a crank mount. A few details can be seen in this short clip made a couple of years after I built the prop.

    For those of you interested in using wiper motors to power your props, you might find this video interesting. In it, I show you how to use the park features and, more importantly, add a SECOND park location so you prop will stop part way around a cycle before being allowed to continue. Check it...
