I'm posting my gravedigger here due to major renovations still needed. After looking at my own video I see a multitude of fix its. I used a dayton 7 RPM motor and the motor mount is way to weak, it bends so I need to replace that, I got a little help bending his acking back a little straighter so that already looks better. I need to fill some extra holes in the hand and don't ask why I have 8 holes in his hands but I do so a little putty and paint should take care of that nicely. And if I drill another hole in the linkage I should be able to get more motion, then to the showroom.

Hey Buckaneer,

That is the exact animated figure I'm trying to build right now. I love the animated hip movement. I was also going to use that exact head, great choice by the way, but I changed it to something a bit more scary. I have the lamp already, I'm just trying to figure out the best way to motorize the hips. Please keep us posted on your progress, I'll be watching this one intently.

Bob, No not yet and yes it did. But they should look very familiar to you Bob I used your lazy susan idea and linkages for the basic design.

The head was purchased on e-bay and it came with a motion maker that fit right inside the head. That was before I attached the head to the PVC. I ended up just tying the extra a/c adapter cord to the neck and using fishing line attached to the jaw.

The motor was also purchased on e-bay and I noticed recently that there was another one listed. It was a little pricey but worth it to me to get a tried and true motor that I know how to use and will hold up well. I' ll post some pics after it looks presentable.

Thanks for the complements!
