THE TWO-ARMS prop. MECHANICAL MOTION via PNEUMATIC ACTION. Next we're going to switch from circuitry and electronics to mechanical motion. We're going to construct a prop that will use five pneumatic cylinders and valves. Several years ago I designed a pneumatic prop which I like to call "Two Arms" because that's all he had. There were Two arms, No legs and he was a pretty scary sight. I wanted to show you him, but I couldn’t find him in my pile of props so we will have to rebuild him. From Drawing Board to Full Frame,Silicon Skinned Animatronic!

Since we now know how to control several pneumatic valves all at once with one simple circuit, let's put together a pneumatic prop that has several actions and see what it can do.

Like I said before, Always use either Aluminum or Steel for your Halloween Animatronic that use pneumatic action as their force. You need strength, and want to be able to count on that prop to stay together!
Start with a basic drawing of what you want to accomplish. Let your imagination run wild! You are in full control! Decide on the size and quantity of the pneumatic cylinders. I go over the full setup to this prop- start to finish on the video.
It's easy to test movement while designing your props. Just take your time and have fun!
Once your pneumatic cylinders are mounted, you need to test the framework for smooth movments and stability.
Of course, this is just a taste of this BIG section..
Once you get the video in your hands, all the tips, tricks and design concepts will be yours.

Let's add a silicon face, arms and hands to this prop
