Hey ya all, I've been looking, listening and just observing for some time. I've also been carving a couple of of fat little fellows about 5ft high and happy as can be.
So I'll post them as soon as I figure this all out. I find that building a V-8 engine is easier than this computer, but thats my background. Anyway, I ran a search on past topics with no luck, anyone know where I can find info. on those fake thunderstorms. Even the cheap steups like at some grocery stores would do me good. Gotta a bar in mind and man, and if its cheesy and noisy, then brother, I gotta have it. Thanks for any help. I gotta run, boss is comin.........

Go to the metal section in Home Depot where all the rainspouts are and so forth --

You'll so find a stack of steel or tin sheets -- about 4' by 4' -- and when I was examining one it made a very distintive thunderstorm-type booming every time I turned it one way or another. About $10 per sheet, as I recall.

It's how they used to make thunder in the old theaters. Hang the sheet by your bar (or disguise) and when a guest enters or they just like they're being lame and deserve, give it a good rattle or whack it with stick!
