Decorating elv


Recommended Posts

Greg, I am planning on something other than the rubber band -- that's the only thing I could put my hands on fast! Thanks for the idea.
C'mon now ...and like the "F" was to far up the keyboard, so you used "V", something that you could reach fast...but you were planning on using an "F" - I know...

Looks Great!! Now I want one. Where do you get the wiper motor from the junk yard? how much do they usually run? and do you run them off a battery or 120? Thanks for any help!!


Pick them up from the local junk yard, run about $10. Computer power supplies @ 5vdc.

I definatly agree on the spring for return up in the North East, but i think for effect you want something real soft. I have a Piglet i just built that is hopping, i used a real strong AC motor the pulls him down and then a real strong spring that moves him up a wooden rod real fast, gives an effect that hes jumping.... The cabinet drawer sliders is a very good and inexpensive idea! will need to file that one away for later.
