Simple Laser Vortex Construction...

I’ve always wanted to post a link to a tutorial on how to build a laser vortex but I’ve not been able to find one that wasn’t either too detailed to the point of confusion, or lacking in detail, which is equally confusing.  Luckily, UrDaddyO31 posted a short video detailing the design of the laser vortex he used for his prop.  It’s not so much a tutorial, but it does lay out the design he used which was originally created by kimcfadd who has them for sale on HalloweenForum. This ultra-simplistic design incorporates a mirror mounted on a cpu fan.  The cpu fan and the laser are mounted to blocks of wood and as the cpu fan spins the mirror projects the circular laser effect which will become your laser vortex when you add a little fog.     ** Warning: Lasers can cause serious and/or permanent eye damage.  Never look directly at a laser or point it directly in someone’s eyes.  Consult Safety Recommendations for Laser Pointers for more...

Heat Exchanger Fog Chiller...

This may just be the ultimate homemade fog chiller, but it’s going to take some skill and effort to find out just how ultimate it is!  It uses the same basic concept as Froggy’s Vortex Fog Chiller, but does so much more efficiently.  Put simply, this chiller will continuously pump ice cold water through the copper piping ensuring that they remain ice cold at all times.     As the fog is sent through the stove pipe which houses the copper piping the fog is chilled and hugs the ground.  It’s the same process that occurs in a car radiator, whereby the airflow over the surface of the radiator cools the hot radiator fluid.  The real benefit of this design is that you can shoot hot fog through this all day long and it won’t run out of “coolant”.     The tutorial originates from Chuck Rice, however, I find the images on the Kickthefog version to be most helpful.  Whichever tutorial you choose, good luck, this one is definitely going to test your...

Homemade Vortex Fog Chiller...

Serialc0d3 over at HalloweenForum.com has a great tutorial on how to build your own Vortex Fog Chiller for very little cash.  Now, there are many containers you can use when building your own vortex fog chiller, but reusing a Tidy Cat Litter pail is the ultimate “green” project.  Additionally, the finished product looks remarkably familiar.       To complete this prop you’ll need the following:   Tidy Cat Litter Pail Few ft of 2 in. PVC 2 in. PVC Elbow Few ft of 1/2 in. PVC pipe Some sort of metal mesh or chicken wire to hold ice Epoxy of your choice (I used Oatey Epoxy Putty) Krylon Fusion Paint (optional) Nozzle for Drain Hose (optional) Drain Hose (optional) Tools for cutting the materials And of course, you’ll need a fog...

Froggy’s Vortex Fog Chiller...

  Fog machines operate by moving fog juice into a temperature controlled heat exchanger that vaporizes the fluid and produces the fog.  Since heat rises, the fog that is produced usually ends up hanging anywhere from the top of the fog machine to the top of the ceiling.  I’m convinced that anyone who’s ever purchased a fog machine had dreams of an entirely different effect with the fog hanging low to the ground creating that creepy looking mist that Hollywood has spoiled us with. The solution of course (short of utilizing dry ice) is to chill the fog before it is emitted, and Froggy’s Fog has just the solution with their Cold Fusion Vortex Fog Chiller.  This beauty stands just 19″ off the ground and is capable of holding up to 20 pounds of ice.  You WILL need to provide your own fog machine for this to work, then just set it so that the fog emitted enters the opening on the Cold Fusion unit.  The fog will be cooled as it passes through the Cold Fusion unit until it is emitted as chilled fog!  Simple and effective.    ...
