Picture of Shaking Cage
I got the idea from a plastic cage with a skeleton that you could buy at Home Depot. I thought it looked a little too plastic for my taste

  4. Remote controlled power switch (I had one from last christmas decorations)

  6. eye bolt 3" long
  7. various nuts and bolts

I bolted the chain to the top and bottom using lag bolts and washers. I sure it is over kill but it was what I had laying around the garage.
cut strips of 3/4" plywood for the top to hide the drill.

Step 4:

Made the shaking part with a large bolt and nut which go into the drill chuck and tighten down using pliers since I don't own a 
chuck key.....does anyone have one?
the square plate was something I just found. then there is a eye bolt with lock nuts. 
thru the eye bolt is the rods I took from old trophies. You can use all thread.

Step 6:

Mounted the drill and put the rod thru the eye bolt. zip tied the trigger and had to use a voltage regulator (Dimmer Switch ) from wally world. 

had to use the dimmer switch because it was way too fast.
NICE DONT KNOW HOW YOU CAME UP WITH IT

I saw this at a hardware store and thought if it was shaking that would be cool
