WE'VE GOT YOU COVERED!
The Cobweb Spinner Pro is a tool designed to produce realistic cobwebs for film and stage in order to give a set an old, aged, creepy, spooky looking feeling. This is as real as it gets!
Lighting on your cobwebs is very important! Always back light your webbing for maximum visibility.
These are the same professional commercial version cobweb spinners the film industry in Hollywood uses on films as well as stage theater. 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.
We have sold over 800 of these tools to:
Theatrical Stages Departments
* Resellers have the options of colors and custom logo laser on their web spinners.

The spinner spins out a wider web (stringy rubber cement) over a larger area with a more even coverage.
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 do on your own, Mix a 1:1 ratio of Elmer's rubber cement and Bestine Rubber Cement Thinner or Turpentine.
All you have to do is pour a small amount of the rubber cement or your mixture into the cylinder, place the lid on and 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.
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 in order 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.
We found the best way is to us:
After the cement is dry (about 5-8 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 to your display.
The 8" blade was custom modified with a 40-degree pitch for a more projected airflow.
We recommend using the high speed or "2" on your drill for the best results.
