Cheap 12" Air Cylinder Needed

2412 Views 12 Replies 7 Participants Last post by  jrzmac
I have been able to use converted door closers on all of my props so far but they only have about a 7" stroke. I need to find one with a 11"-12" stroke for my new build. Does anyone have a source for cheap pneumatic cylinders? I don't need stainless or anything fancy. It's a light-duty application. Under $30 would be ideal.

If you're used to converting door closers, Why not use a bicycle pump? Walmart has a nice one for like $8 that converts easily! Since it is light duty, it should work for you. You may need to use a return spring unless the weight of the prop will return it like a trash can trauma. A good return spring can be found on a dishwasher door.
