Attached springs and mounted piston tonight... I never got it hooked up to air... I hope it's strong enough to pull it back... it's like a giant mousetrap!

I had to make the clevis out of a turnbuckle I cut in half... thread size matched... drilled hole though the side of it... Worked like a charm!

You will probably want to use a quick exhaust valve at the pressure inlet (top port on cylinder). Your solenoid valve and airline will choke too much air and not allow it to "spring up" quickly like a mechanism of that nature was designed to do.
