For the neck, insert the long length of PVC pipe into the 8" piece of pool noodle



Fit the neck assembly into the skull. Hopefully you will have a skull that this method can be applied to. If not you will need to find another method of fitting the neck to your head/skull



Fit the head and neck assembly into the pool noodle attached to the massager



This completes the basic assembly for the grave grabber.

You may need to adjust the placing of the plumbers tape to the massager and/or PVC pipe to get the movement you want, also the positioning of the head and arm.

Dressing the grave grabber will be your choosing, depending on the type of grabber you want and You can pad out the arms using foam pipe wrap.

As an update to this I have since made some adjustments to my grave grabber

1. For the shoulders I reduced the length of pipe from 6" to 3", this worked better when I added some padding for the shoulders and body



2. I removed the pool noodle from the top of the massager and instead drilled a 7/8" hole in front of the massager arms. This gives a more solid and stable fixing for the neck.

If you are thinking of doing this, I would suggest that you remove the top from the massager then drill the hole.





3. I used a piece of foam to pad out the shoulders and body




This is how the grave grabber looks now

sweet prop

I loved these, never built one but I do need more movement in my graveyard. This is going on my list of "must makes"

Thanks for the pics and info

Could you tell us what was the individual measured lengths of PVC you used for the arms ?
Thanks
I finally used 3" pieces for the shoulders and 8" for both the upper and lower arms. Because the movement of the shiatsu moves the arms outwards, any longer pieces for the shoulders look out of proportion. All the original dimensions are posted in the first stage thread.

Great Grave Grabber, Herman. I have a couple of those Shiatsu's that I need to "dress". Thanks for the inspiration.

Right on. I like how you filled the chest out without using a bunch of paper and tape

Question, are you going to leave this running full time? Or triggering it? Basicly, I'm thinking of the integrity of the motors in the massager. They have to be someone "stout" because it's meant to run with pressure against it, right?
