Keeper of Spider Hill
Due to time constraints last year we ended up buying an FCG from another vendor. I loved the ghost, but was not crazy about the rig so this year I decided it was time to rebuild it Spider Hill style (in PVC). I made this in a couple of hours using 2 of our Spider Joints and one of our PVC mounted wiper motor mounts. The rest was just built using basic hardware. The only piece I fabricated was the crank arm by welding some stock onto the original drive arm. Using the Spider Joints on the front of the rig will allow me to adjust the position of the ghost's arms and they also fold in for storage. I am also upgrading it by adding a small pulley on the line that moves the head and also adding 3 fishing swivels to the washer on the drive arm to keep the lines from twisting. I will dust it with some black paint tomorrow and hopefully he'll be hanging in the window again soon! If anyone is interested in building one of these, it's very easy and I am going to make up some quick plans here soon.
