I need everyone's help i am planning on making a skeleton swing on a swing and need some ideas how to accomplish this with a window motor. If anyone has made anything like this if possible could you send some pictures or describe what you have done.

I have a few ideas in my head using PVC but just wanted some ideas.

you can use any motor. I used a reindeer motor and a long piece of flat aluminum from home depot bent end in vise bolted one end to bottom of swing other to motor mounted sideways on board

I built a Swinging Skeleton about seven years ago and it's a hit in the neighborhood every year.
The way I did it was to mount the skeleton and swinging mechanism on one branch of a tree, then mount the motor and crank assembly on a different branch (straight across from the swing mechanism). The swing mechanism arm is attached to the motor crank by about a foot of fishing line.

Here's a video of it:



Here's a link to my Photobucket page with pictures:
