Head attachment
« on: November 29, 2017, 07:57:38 PM »
How do i keep tom's head on the turn table, without glue, as i plan on using mine for a school project, much like i did with gypsy for the last one by the same teacher, which i got a 100 on for using puppetry, and a decent jim mallon voice. But really how do i keep the head in place. also i can't contribute to the wiki since my personal mac dyed, and my school mac block all wikis. By the way i was the one to update the bots photos on there.

As much of a hassle as it might be, the best way to do it is to take the head/pipe off the puppet, measure the amount that is sticking out between the lazy susan and the neck, and slice it off at the bottom.  If you do that, slide the pipe back down the barrel and reattach the PVC joint under the hoverskirt so that it's flush with the bottom of the bowl, your problem should be fixed!  The joint sitting flush with the bowl will lock the head close to the lazy susan, closing the gap.  It might help to put a bolt through the joint/PVC pipe just to make sure it's super tight and the control rod won't pop off.  If you've already put a bolt through down there, you'll have to drill a second hole higher once you slice off a bit of the bottom.

Hope this helps!  It's more work, but it'll make your Servo work like a charm!

also speaking of my gypsy i might have to trim the lower back, since the jaw gets stuck often.

Forgot to mention that the bolts no longer fit onto the lowest pipe. But contact cement works fine.
