HOW TO – Pneumatic Tombstone!

HOW TO – Pneumatic Tombstone!

Here’s a great “haunting with compressed air” project, Peter writes – “This project involves a hollow tombstone that has a seamless crack that when the pneumatic cylinder is activated the tombstone will break open reveling a creature inside. What’s good about this project is that all the mechanics are concealed inside and from the outside it looks like just a regular tombstone. This is a good thing because you can place the tombstone near guest without them realizing that the tombstone breaks open making a bigger scare.” [via] – Link.
