COBWEB SPINNER PRO

2024 Black Steel Edition Professional Studio-grade FX Web Spinners now available!

WebSpinnerPro logo 3_0 wht_green_ trans.png

These are the same professional commercial studio-grade cobweb spinners the film industry in Hollywood uses on films, and stage theater but slightly smaller for small studios and consumers. The Cobweb Spinner Pro uses an aerodynamic airflow from the spinning fan blades which blow the material forward and bend outward from the lid lip as the product inside is spun out from tiny holes that create a stringy airborne spiral web onto the area needed. If you want a more spiral web, cover up some of the holes with tape to get the desired look. In the Titan demo video, we taped up 2 of the 4 holes for a more controlled webbing in just the right areas. These spinners are made right here in the U.S.A.

 

Over 800 of these tools were sold worldwide to:

  • Production Studios

  • Prop Masters

  • Art Departments

  • Scenic Designers

  • Theatrical Stages Departments

  • Movie Set Contractors

  • Halloween Decorators 

  • Consumers

​The web spinner spins out a wider web (stringy rubber cement) over a larger area which means your work can be completed faster and look more realistic and natural. Rubber cement is safe on trees, shrubs, plants, etc. Pick off the large amounts when your event has been completed and the rest will disintegrate.

RUBBER CEMENT:

Rubber cement is flammable when it spins out so do not spray over an open flame.

Once the rubber cement is dry and the chemical inside the cement evaporates (approximately 8-10 minutes) it is no longer flammable and totally safe. 

Feel free to light candles within the cobweb as the rubber cement will just melt when in contact with a flame. 

Many customers have questions about studios using Web Fluid vs Rubber Cement. Both are one of the same and some web fluid makers use a thinner version that is less flammable because the product has been thinned and as the product is spun out, it dries quicker, making it less flammable. You can also use Webgoo or other web fluid makers which can be expensive.

For thinner webbing, you can mix on your own, Mix a 1:1 ratio of Elmer's rubber cement and Bestine Rubber Cement Thinner or Turpentine.

Simply pour a small amount of the rubber cement or your mixture into the cylinder, place the lid on, tighten with the rubber end cap screw, Attach it to your drill and you are ready to go! These are the same cobweb spinners the film industry uses on films as well as stage theater. These cobweb spinners use Aerodynamic airflow from the spinning fan which blows forward and bends outward from the lid lip as the product inside is flung out from tiny holes that create a stringy airborne web onto the area needed. We recommend using the highest speed on your drill.

Clean up:

To clean the cylinder after use, use mineral spirits, Goof-off, De-Solv-It or rubber cement thinner, Let stand in the cylinder for about 30 seconds or longer with the lid on to break down and loosen the rubber cement inside, then spin the remaining cleaner out the same way you used for cement to clear the holes and or rub out the remaining rubbery fluid with a rag, paper towel or bottle brush. Repeat if necessary or allow the cement to dry a few hours and rub it out later if you don't have time.

Troubleshooting tips:

After pouring rubber cement into the cylinder and lid is put on and ready to spin out when your drill is on and nothing spins out:

  • Check and make sure the fan blade is spinning clockwise and the drill is not in reverse.

  • After using the spinner for a few minutes and nothing is coming out, Your cylinder may be empty and need to be refilled with rubber cement.

  • Check the holes in the side to make sure they are not clogged. Rub your fingers around the outside of the holes of the cylinder to clear the holes and you should be ready to go.

 

After the cement is dry (about 3-5 minutes), you can lighten your webs with spray paint or powder. Grey primer looks very good or you can use a lighter tan color. You can also use powder if you want realistic dusty-looking webs for your display.

The 8" blade was custom modified with a 40-degree pitch for better-projected airflow.

We recommend using the high speed or the "2" setting on your drill for the best results.
