I was more thinking of a brain storm kind of thing. Maybe a member wants to draw up plans and post them. Generally a discussion, and if anyone wants to actually build it, they could post a vid of it.ruafraid said:Doc is this gonna be a group build ? LOL Yes I agree we can build this much cheaper.
I'm not sure how we could TEAM build it, as we all live so far away from each other. OR another idea would be more contest like....But instead of judges for best prop, it would be the first to ACCURATELY reproduce it and post a vid of it running would be the winner, but since we already have a contest forum it may not be appropriate to have a seperate one here. So, that brings us back to the original idea of a general discussion and a chance to show off your replication powers!BobC said:Im up for this Build as long as its going to be a TEAM build. I would like to add this to my Yard Haunt this Halloween it would fit perfectly. Later all :jol:
That's the spirit, Torgen...Apply ideas from other props to this one.Torgen said:Actually, I'm planning for something similar with my toe-pincher banger. My plans are to use a wiper motor driving an axle with an irregular cam that pushes a rod through the bottom, and another irregular cam to bang the lid against the chains that will wrap around the box. Still mulling over the exact mechanism.
LOL!RAXL said:oh-oh, why not put a midget in the box? :googly:
He can shake it around, and make all kindsa noises.
Yea, HJ it is pneumatic. Any suggestions for alternate mechs? How would you do the fog and timing and sound? Prop-1? Any suggestions for Prop-1 alternatives? Is there a cheap and simple way to acheive this? Maybe there aint, so how would you DESIGN it? I want to really challenge you guys to come up with ideas.heresjohnny said:Sounds fun Doc. Looks to me like is has a pneumatic jack, or maybe electromagnet, that shots out of the bottom of the box, probably over near one corner, then pulss back in real fast, leaving the box to fall back down. The way the box bounces around I'd say it was fairly light.
