I got mine at Kindy's .

If you buy a certain amount I think the shipping is free. it worked out to around 9 or 10 motors.

Default Goals For 2012! Reindeer Motors!

So, my goal for the 2012 Greenwood Home Haunt is going to be to add animation to all of my static characters. It's going to be a lot of work. However everyone on the Forum has been a HUGE inspiration and resource for new ideas!

That being said, I've been working a lot with reindeer motors. Only problem is, I've only got three left. So, I searched the Forum for a new source. No luck!

After a lot of google searches I FINALLY found a site with replacement motors and thought I'd share with everyone. Here's the link to Kindys.

Kindys

Happy Haunting!!

Threads merged because they both provide links to Kindys

dear motors are great to complement real motors(wiper motors)/pneumatics, in my experience this year, they just did not have the power to drive anything i wanted to do without stopping. wiper motors are the way to go, weight of your props can be virtually anything(within reason), un less as i said, they are used in conjunction with another motor. I am anctious to start my JIB and I plan on using one to drive the crank on the side of the box!

I'd have to agree with gooffy. They're great motors as long as they don't have a load on them.

I used a wiper motor to pull a light arm and wing up on a large figure I have this year. I felt like the motor struggled. Does anyone have any stronger motor options?

Walterb, try using a counterbalance. If the figures large there should be room inside.
