looking to build my first pneumatic...

Hey all,
I'm finally going to take the plunge and build something pneumatic, most likely a body slinger. I've been researching it for a while, but I still seem to have more questions than answers at this point. Basically, I'm looking for a site with a simple diagram of a pneumatic system, its components, and their functions. Also, if you know of a place where I can purchase these components for less $$, that would really help!

so I think I'd need like a 12" stroke (?) I wish there was a kit I could buy...
Their is a kit ! www.frightprops.com I bought one when I started out with pnuematics because I had no idea how it all worked and I progressed from there. One thing the kit did NOT come with is the mounting hardware so be sure to get the clevis for the rod end and the rear pivot mount. FYI most of the pnuematic cylinders we see on e-bay have the 1/8" ports and some have the larger 1/4" if you can standardize one one size it will help you in the long run same goes for the voltage on the valves either 24V or 120V their are other voltages but those 2 seem to be used more often. Yes the kit IS more expensive than finding the stuff on e-bay but it's one option you have. The other option is going to a local suppiler if you have one and asking for help. I have 3 and only one of them would spend any time helping me and they even gave me a fair discount because it was for a haunt. It turns out they help the other pro haunts as well.
