I am sure I am missing something (I usually am), but can someone point me to a link around here for a how-to on a simple prop that makes something (oh, say a mask) move up and down? I am not looking for a pneumatic *pop* just a slow up and down motion.

Thanks!

Try this site. I used their plans to make a slowly moving figure that rises and falls behind my driveway gate. And it worked great.

I used these plans first:

But believe me, the other version works a lot better.

Yeah I know what ya mean! LOL PLus, it seems the compressor stuff costs a whole lot more per prop than motors. I'm not in a position to spend that much yet.

seamus...do you know BOB -O from St Louis. he is on the Halloween L. He made a cool monster props...ok several slow moving but errie props that go up and down behind a wall. And a slow moving monster who slowly leans out from behind a curtain then back again. Um let me see if i can find his link and I think it shows the way he made his as well.

Thank you one and all for the links and the ideas. Wormy, if you could find the link that would be great. Something peeking around a corner would work perfectly given how my house is set up.

Basically I'm looking for something to put to the left of my sidewalk, to distract the TOTers (etc.) from the pneumatic to their right until it pops.

I like your pair of peek-a-boo skellies. It uses the same basic mechanism as the grave crawler I built, except turned upwards instead of outwards. I like the effect. I might have to try that myself.
