I made mine a few years back based a basic FCG setup with a wiper motor powered on a 5 volt 1 amp wall wart. It's leg span is 54" and I made the legs pivot where they attach to the body with screw eyes. Mine has red led eyes and uses a small motion activated spitter to attack people. All the (fishing) lines are green to hide them and extra long to drop down through a rope web.



I may update the design soon to replace the screw eyes on the legs with universal joints for more fluid movement.

I have a giant spider...I have a rotisserie motor...now all I need is the gumpshun!

I plan on hanging my spider in my tree this year and have trying to figure a way to make it move. This is just in time.

I've never seen that, that is FRICKIN SWEET
Would be great for any spider room and I have several wiper motors and an extra rig. Add some other spiders an pneumatic one trigger that then they jump back into this, I think I would load my shorts....the possibilities......

I would love to see some vid or pics of this set up in his haunt, anyone got some???

Way cool

I swung by his YouTube channel and the "Updated Spider" video is basically how he set it up. He has a haunted barn set-up it seems. Here's the link to his channel if you want to contact him: YouTube - dacostasr's Channel

I had fun making one last year. Mine used a wiper motor at 5 vdc and had wooden dowels for legs. I would strongly advise against the wooden legs. They become extremely brittle after they dry out over time. Mine have busted 5-6 times and I have to keep gluing them back together. I cut notches into the base of the legs and ran a pin through them and a 90 degree angle bracket. This was my "bench test".

OOOOhhhh I saw this a few years ago and forgot about it....but that would really go well in my entryway. I wasn't real thrilled with my "mama" spider last year (cheapy storebought), but this would be an impressive "mama". THanks!
