Thanks so much for the info Caretaker and Aquayne! I wondered if the wire would try to jump off if the wheels weren't pretty much parallel to the wire.

Having triangular turns, as opposed to right angles, is a very welcome tip! I would have wasted huge amounts of time learning that! Now that I've thrown little bats out as an idea (which I think would look cool), my husband and daughters think no one would see them (small dark bats/night) plus their wings wouldn't flap up and down. They would flop around a bit as they go around so I don't think that matters. Wonder if I could attach the wings with a tiny spring to help with flopping? Visitors are fascinated by my 2 big bats that are suspended over the cemetery with Spiderwire and the bats are stationery. All that work, all that time on all my props and they love the bats I put up as an afterthought... I have spotlights pointing straight up to illuminate them. Guess I could have a few random spots shooting up to catch movement from the Axworthy?

Thanks again for all your help! It is much appreciated!

You could light them up slightly, but they could bounce. My ghosts bounce which wasn't intended, but still looks cool.

I'm so glad that somebody got some use out of this effort. I enjoyed making it very much. The 1/2" conduit pipes are nice and springy, it keeps the line from breaking.
