01/21/2018 - Updates to Watchman kits. All Watchman kits now include (4) Spider Joints allowing you to completely pose both of the prop's arms!
The Watchman sees all! Manufactured from sturdy 1/8" aluminum plate, this kit promises to stand watch over your cemetery for a long time. His movement rides on a 3 inch steel lazy Susan bearing assembly and the drive arm features a nylon roller for low friction. The included PWM speed controller allows you to adjust his speed to exactly where you want it.
