Hello all I was curious if anybody had any information on what a good air compressor, size tank ect. I know for the most part it depends on how many props its going to run, but just looking for a starting compressor. thanks for any & all help.
i think i have 4 air compressors ... 1 i have dedicated for use in the attic ... i have a pancake & a small pos one (because it's light) ... i splurged & got a makita mac5200 ... it was relatively expensive, but it's highly recommended
you'll probably want an air reservoir/portable tank near the prop(s) so that it can supply the volume that you may need & that way you can keep the compresor a distance away so that the tots won't hear it.
you'd think that i'm heavy into animated props due to the number of comprssors, but no, not yet ... i'm certain though, i'll get into pneumatic some time down the road, but i have so many other ideas for my yard & porch haunt that i haven't jumped in with both feet yet
there are definitely people here with way more experience than me, so heed their advice
Definitely true, go big or go home. I've got a 20 gallon, cast iron old school Campbell Hausfeld that's has a full duty motor. I'm running one monster in a box (1 cylinder) and could probably run on more pneumatic prop if I wanted to but nothing more without it continuing to cycle. If you can afford to get a high CFM compressor with a big tank, I say go for it!

Hi. I’m planning to build a triaxial skull. I’d watched videos about assembling 3-axis movement kits from Twisty (no longer in business) and from Monster Guts (currently out of stock)... and they all refer to “Lindberg skulls”. These skulls look relatively light, and they seem to be popular...
Alligator Skeletons back in stock at Oriental Trading. Ooops! Just a tad too small (LOL). I guess I'll use a human pose-n-stay to make an alligator skeleton and toss this one in the stack of misfit toys.
