Hey all. I'm looking for your recommendations on a decent cheap fog machine. ...basically all I'm going to need from it is to roll some fog off of my balcony. ....and hope that my downstairs neighbors don't mind.
Yeah, heard that. Crossing fingers that I don't have to deal with them. Good recommendation on the VEI foggers.I would steer clear of any Chauvet products (Sorry Terra! ). Their machines often work well, but when they don't you'll have to deal with their terrible customer service. I would buy a VEI fogger. In fact, I'm going to add one to my collection this year!
I have 3 or 4 of the "cheapo" 400 watt foggers. I have gotten them on clearance from Target and from a local drug store chain. As far as I can tell, they all are almost identically made and I have not really seen any difference in performance from one to the other. This year I finally broke down and bought some Froggy's juice. In the past I used whatever store bought stuff I could get my hands on and I definitely noticed a difference there. Some of the juice seemed to produce nice thick fog, while other brands made a little more than what looked like steam.Yeah, heard that. Crossing fingers that I don't have to deal with them. Good recommendation on the VEI foggers.
Changed Reality, here's another thought. The fog juice really does make a difference. How about you get a cheapo fogger from Wal-Mart but use the real good fog juice?
I agree. However original post was college money - cheap fogger - from balcony. sooooooo.The advantage of a home made chiller is that you can hook up multiple fog machines to increase the amount of smoke - I have 2 different 400 watt fog machines - one works better than the other - hooked up to a styrofoam cooler with a notch cut out of the bottom. Dry ice in the cooler, turn on the fog machines simultaneously and viola... tons of ground smoke.
I am looking for a better fogger though - might have to get a 1000w after halloween this year.
