Pneumatic system

  1. May 20, 2009 #1
    I need to create a simple piston system with small pistons connected to a 20oz kind of tank so that when I push a button/switch it pushes out and then can return when i switch it back. Does anyone have any advice on where/how to do so with a air tank-control and set of two small pistons etc.

    Is there a question in there somewhere?

    You'd need to make sure energy doesn't leave the system if you don't want to have a compressor in there somewhere.

    You can find air actuators and valves at Mcmaster-carr.
