I actually did build one. I would guess it cost me $75 - $100 to build. I like the movement of the prop. It appears out of nowhere if placed behind a window cutout.
Here is a link to my site. Go to the props page and you will find my Body Slinger. Click the pic and there is a video as well.

Question: How difficult would it be to adapt the "airless" one to work in my existing tomb (inside area 44"x18")? I'd LOVE to set this up so that the body comes bolting up out of the tomb, tossing the "lid" to one side (it would actually be hinged.)

I'd actually suggest avoiding PVC pipe as your mechanism material. Go with steel instead. Even if you don't have access to a welder, it's possible to bolt these types of things together.

PVC fittings always seem to crack at stress points, and you keep rebuilding them. Do it with steel the first time, and worst case, you have to retighten some bolts occassionaly.

Of course, if you can get your hands on a small mig welder, give it a shot. It's easier than it looks.

Think I"m going with a half-body, so the mechanism is low enough to be hidden by the fog. It should be light enough that PVC won't be a problem.

Now to figure out the measurements....

You can see mine of youtube...Halloween 2005. Worked great!! I didn't use it this year only to vary things.
