    Using MonsterGuts wiper motors in Christmas props

    I don't really do Halloween, but I hang about in those forums as those guys have been making props for year and always have good ideas. I've made mostly Christmas props for now.

    A couple of props that use the MG wiper motor are my:
    *North Pole Command Center - https://www.tooz.us/north-pole-command-center.html (videos are at the end).
    **I am using one to turn the satellite and another to work the two bears in the display itself

    and
    *My animated blowmold nativity - https://www.tooz.us/animated-blowmold-nativity.html
    **It is what I use to raise/lower the star

    I have some other props using wiper motors on my site, but they used ones from cars.....

    The MG wiper motors have worked great and are over 5 years old in some props!

    Thanks. They are so useful, inexpensive, high torque, and can run endlessly. Once you realize they go in a circle (not back and forth), and that the speed can be varied by adjusting the DC power in, the ideas are endless.

    Yes, a lot of people don't realize that wiper motors spin 360 and the "wiper motion" is actually created by the linkage.
