I have found 2 methods of making a "live" hangman prop w/ a wiper motor:

1. This one physically moves the legs

2. This one (I think) relies on vibration to move the legs.

Anyone have a video of the 2nd method in action?

Which one would be the best as far as easiness, durability, and effect? What is your vote and why?

Thanks!

ive used two hanging corpses, "the bobs", for years...well since the movie "office space" come out (which is where they go their names). I use something similar to the first method which works really well. Ive seen many designs that are vibratory and they just dont get the movement that I like.

my vote is for the first method.

Can you show me a pic of the spot where the motor attaches at the waist? I've got a wiper motor waiting for this one! Love the motion...
