Grave Grabber / Ground Breaker
I have put together a tutorial for a shiatsu
hacked grave grabber. I don't take any credit for the hack, thanks for this goes
to Spooky Sam and all the other haunters that have developed this.
This how to has been put together for fellow haunters that would like a guide to the how to and I have simply tried to simplify the process.
You will need
1/2" PVC Pipe (3ft should suffice)
2 x 45 degree elbow joints
1 x 60 degree joint
Lightweight head or skull
6" round pool noodle (optional)
6 x No 6 1/2" Sheet metal screws
Drill with 3/32" drill bit
Hacksaw or pipe cutting tool
For those of you that are not aware what a shiatsu massager is, here is a pic of one - they can be picked up for a few bucks at thrift stores
Step 1 - remove the fabric cover
You can do this two ways :
1. cut the fabric off using a sharp knife, or
2. remove the top of the shiatsu by removing the screws underneath, then remove the fabric by taking out the screws or clips holding the fabric (this is my preferred method and will help with step 2.
Step 2 - remove the massage nodules
The two rubber nodules need to be removed from the rotating poles. These can sometimes just be pulled off by hand, or pried off with a screwdriver. Be careful when prying off as they have a tendency to spring off with a high velocity.
However, as in the case of this particular model the rubber and poles are one piece and will need to be cut away using a sharp knife. You can see where the cut mark is in the second picture the nodules removed
With the top taken off the massager, its a little easier to remove the rubber nodules, and also prevents the top from being damaged or cracked
Once you have removed the two nodules, reassembly the shiatsu - this is now ready for part two
