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! All spinners are industrial-designed and made for constant reuse and will last for years of operation!

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 but slightly smaller for small studios and consumers. We have been making these for 30+ years. There are very small consumer versions of these like from Morris and others but if you want the studio-grade FX models, you have come to the right place.

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 you want.


We have sold over 800 of these tools worldwide to:

  • Production Studios

  • Prop Masters

  • Art Departments

  • Scenic Designers

  • Theatrical Stages Departments

  • Set Contractors

  • Halloween Decorators

  • Consumers 

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

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 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 to clean out your webspinner:


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. The 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.

Rubber cement and drill are not included unless offered as an add-on purchase or bundled sale. Rubber cement can be purchased at most department and crafts stores or online.

The 12 oz. or 16 oz. cylinder is made of heavy-duty stainless steel with 4 tiny holes for the web fluid to spin out evenly. Some spinners use 1 or 2 holes. Ours has 4 holes. The inner bolt threads are shielded by a tube of plastic for protection from the rubber cement fluid and for easier cleanup after the job is complete.


We can also custom laser your name or company logo on the Cylinder and lid.

The lid is a 3.5" or 4" 5052 thick aluminum disc with a quick screw-on rubber knob.

It was designed for airflow out from the blades as the fluid is spun out. The air pushes against the lip of the lid and forcing the air outward and forward onto your project.

Available in powder coat color or brushed metal finish.

EXT_ (1).JPG

Included is a 5" Drill extension for those who need a more distance from the fan blade. It comes with a 5/16 male-to-female threaded extender and lock washer.

You will need a 1/2" wrench to tighten and loosen to remove the extension. 

(wrench not included).
