    As we really get into build season, I thought it would be appropriate to start a thread with some useful links to tutorials, info and resources for getting started with pneumatics. This forum is a wealth of knowledge with plenty of ideas and people willing to help and we hope you take full...

    I finally took the plunge and bought a welder and am trying to teach myself how to weld. Here's the results of my first attempts at welding up a pneumatic pop up. These will be combined into my Pirate display with an audio track and run by a Picaxe controller.

    This project was not on my to do list for this year but when I found this old broken up Grandfather Clock I knew what had to be done. It will be installed in the parlor of the haunt along with the piano player and singer. The door is controlled by a 1 1/16 inch bore, 4 inch throw cylinder and...

    This is the newest animated creature addition to my graveyard. I think he'll provide a few TOT's with a scare this year. I used a 3/4 bore, 16 inch throw cylinder and the prop was run with one of my Picaxe controllers.

    In an effort to add to the scare in the spider portion of our haunt, I added a triggered leaping spider. He'll be placed near the front door and will be the final scare the TOT's will have to pass before they get their candy. I'm planning on adding a spitter as well that will add a great hiss...

    My eel was delivered today and I can't wait to include it in my display. If you haven't seen Bobzilla's creations, make sure to check out his posts. His work is fantastic! Now that I have my eel in hand, it's time to figure out how to animate him. He has a 1" pvc pipe running through the body...

    I'm using a 08 Picaxe built to Fritz's VLC design to control my Vampire Pop up. When the Picaxe is triggered, it activates a relay which causes the audio to begin, the solenoid to activate and it turns on a light. After the routine runs, I've set a retrigger delay of 30 seconds before the prop...

    OK, folks, this will be a long post simply because I type EXTREMELY fast, so please forgive me. I will TRY to make it worth the read! I've ALWAYS loved Halloween to the point of going to the biggest haunts around the St. Louis area multiple times. I also liked the decorations and scare...

    My first pneumatic prop. I used a Cowlacious sound board and a screen door cylinder. This got lots of scares last halloween. This year's project list is long. We'll see how I do.
