Step 1: Make the Spinning Mirror
steps 8 & 9 here-http://www.instructables.com/id/EXB5CA21JPET9K5F7Y this
is the genius of the project.
I Used a little 3 volt radio shack motor with the cog on it, and drilled a
hole in the bottle cap. Then I pressed the cap on the cog and put a lot of
super glue gel on it.
For my needs mounting the mirror at a 45 degree angle produced a vortex that
got too big in too short of a distance, so I just glued the mirror in the
bottle cap at a couple of degrees so I could get a tube of light.
Step 2: Make the Motor Mount & Attach to the Base
I had to use the 2x3 bricks on top and bottom because when I sinched the zip ties down It spread the pieces and those bricks held the assembly straight.
Step 3: Attach Laser Mount & Laser
Next I took apart a $30 laser pointer from office max and used another zip tie to mount it.
I Put the zip tie over the momentary switch and sinched it down so that the switch stayed on.
**Help.. the switch has 4 solder points on it... I wanted to figure out a way to jump the switch but didn't want to risk ruining the laser** what is the proper way to take care of this?
Step 4: Add some feet to get proper angle and stability
Step 5: Mount Laser In Jack-o-Laser
Step 6: Run wires and insert LED's for Eye Lights
Step 7: Wait for night & Shoot a Death Ray at the Kiddies
This would work better inside because the smoke dissapates outside due to the wind.
My wife wasn't as excited about putting this in the house as i was so.... Its on the porch.
