  1. Mechanical: Dave's Grave Digging Skeleton - Re-Engineered.

    Halloween Props
    VIDEO: https://youtu.be/fTJSfBQC-WI This a project I actually completed for Halloween 2017, but have been lax in finding the time to take some decent pics and shoot a video of it in action. I always loved the Grave-Digging Skeleton, but always wondered if I could re-engineer it in a new way...
  2. Mechanical: Wiper Motor Question

    Halloween Props
    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.

  6. Mechanical: Asking for help on how to prevent motors from burning out

    Halloween Props
    I rely on so many of you to guide my prop builds, and this thread will be no different. This year two of my props had motors that failed, and I'm pretty sure it was our fault for asking them to do something they weren't meant to do. I'm hoping that with a bit of guidance, we can set them up...
  7. Mechanical: Turned a head turner prop to a Christmas tree oscillator

    Halloween Props
    Thought I'd share a head turner prop which was shortly made into a Christmas tree oscillator. I used a couple of pieces 1/2 threaded pipe, 3/4 PVC, 1' aluminum flat bar, some crap plywood, and a couple of nuts and bolts. The angle wiper motor mounting plate was bought from Frightprops. I'll...
  8. Electronic/Software: Motors

    Halloween Props
    Looking to do a Leering Skeleton prop and something else. I already invested in one wiper motor, 12 volt power and speed control. Looking to go a cheaper route for the second one. I read the cheap synchronous motors are good but get hot???? It will need to run for 4 hours straight. Would...

    I have this large wraith with outstretched hands, and I was thinking of hooking up a motor to thrust a zombie baby out of its abdomen in and out. This would be my first foray into DIY motor props and I could use some guidance. Take a look at the 14:14 mark of this video...
  10. Mechanical: Wiper motor quick popup

    Halloween Props
    I was playing around with linkage simulator and stumbled across this configuration. It would really work well with a Picovolt where you can set it start when it is laying down and it would stop then go in reverse back to the laying position. Or let it go ahead and just make one complete turn...

    Tutorials and Step-By-Step
    Hey Haunters! Today I’m building an electric powered fence banging zombie. I used a windshield wiper motor for the movement and built the fence myself. He rocks the fence back and forth and with the added audio I think he’s gunna spook a lot of people. Have a look and let me know what your guys...
  13. Mechanical: Wiper Motor Arm Attachment Help

    Halloween Props
    Does any one have a good way of attaching an arm to a basic wiper motor like you would get on monster guts? I need a longer arm than the ones provided. I've tried attaching metal bars that I have drilled a hole in. Then I will use washers and a nut and hope to get enough compression to hold the...

    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?
