One of my new props for 2011 is a large meat grinder. I give credit to Devil's Chariot for the inspiration for this prop...his is amazing and you should check it out.

The main part of the prop has been built. There are two wooden gears driven by a wiper motor. I have a shiatsu massager in the top that will move "body pieces" around as they appear to go into the grinder. The front "flange" I made from PVC, wood, and bolts as I could not find a decent cheap one to buy. The "meat" will be coming out of here (a blood soaked mop head) along with a pump that I have hooked up to spray "blood". The plan is also to have a skeleton with one of my 3-axis skulls pushing the body parts into the grinder.

I got the grinder primed this weekend and just recieved my order of Brutal Rust...going to put that on to make the grinder look and old and rusty.

Update: First coat of "rust" added...still along way to go.

Looks like a real quality job, nice job. Saw a grinder costume on coolest-homemade-costumes.com with the person standing in a meat grinder setup/costume; I loved it, my wife less so!

Wow...I don't think I would have the patience to cut out all those gear notches? I'd beat the grinder to it and I'd lose a finger first on my own just making it.

It sure looks awesome and worth it, however.

Maybe I'll try it with pink styrofoam. I want to make a mine car next year and could use the rusted gear idea incorporated somewhere on the haunt

Great job!

Looks Great already. I had an idea on a chipper, where you have a Red Light at the bottom where the meat comes out. Have a hidden water hose that sprays every once in a while. With the Red Light on it in the Dark, people will think they're getting sprayed with Blood from the Grinder. Just an idea. Again Great Job.

WOW! That looks AWESOME! I love the concept and the fact that it can be built using common items. No time this year. But I will have to keep this in mind for the future.
