How can I make a hydraulic Halloween prop?

I wanted something to jump out at people or out of a coffin by using a hydraulic system. If you have any ideas on how I could build something like this, that would be great!

It would be easier to make the prop with a pneumatic (air-powered) system. This way, you don’t need to worry about making a closed system or about bleeding the system. You either need a pump and some kind of storage for the compressed air, or a bottle of compressed gas.

A lot of things can be used to make a pump and storage bottle, for a small prop, something like a car pump and a large coke bottle, or for bigger things, a motorized compressor and a larger tank.

Alternatively, you could use a bottle of compressed gas like CO2 or helium. Depending how big the prop is, you could use something like a BB gun cartridge, a small bottle of helium that you can get in a kit with balloons, or a bigger bottle like the ones used in pubs. If you do this, you’ll also need a regulator as the bottles run a very high pressure, and you also need to be sure that you’re not running the piston at too high pressure. Get someone who knows what they’re doing to help you.

Finally, you need a piston, a controlling valve, and all the pipework and fittings. When plumbing it all up, the valve will just send air from the supply of compressed air to one of the two inputs on the piston. Make sure that air can vent from the unused input on the piston, otherwise nothing will happen.

Where to buy or how to make an up / down motor support for Halloween?

Halloween is just around and want to make a simple accessory rising and falling slowly (maybe 5-10 pounds, maybe less). Is there an inexpensive way to accomplish this? There are many other implementation of the cheapest available: http://cgi.ebay.com/spinning-motor-hallo … Instead of spinning, I would just go up and down, preferably by several feet. Someone suggested I buy a toy he already has the mechanism and pulls it out and mounted with my new decor, but I can not find this: http://www.apogeekits.com/santa_claus_xm … I do not think it strong enough for the weight, but is an example of what I'm doing. I think that there are "fall" of Halloween accessories, such as spiders and bats also use batteries, but do not need something moves, etc. Anything with an engine that can connect the better. Thanks.

If you have an engine that runs very slow barbecue skewers, instead of having a fight, (the bar snacks to go), put a large wooden disc in the tree, like maybe 12 "diameter. Drill a 1 / 4" hole 1 / 2 "of outer edge and glue in a short 1 / 4 "dowel. As the engine turns slowly Nog revolves around a large circle. Having an engine on the ground, another pin in the top of the frame, make a loose loop in a solid chain, as in the ankle on the disk, run the chain on the upper pin and set yourself projects for the network. As the motor turns the rope at the ankle, makes the project from top to bottom. With a little ingenuity, you can make plans to move up and down, side to other and diagonally. To increase the use of travel of a larger disk. Good luck and scare children bergeebers
