Pneumatic Jack help

Unread postAuthor: PVC+ME=Dangerous » Thu Jan 31, 2008 11:03 pm

Ok i am trying to build a pneumatic jack for my robots.

Please keep reading, i know it has nothing to do with a potato gun but i know that you guys can help me here.

Basically i need a one way piston that i can run off of my air compressor because i am trying to prove that this robotics company is overpriced and that i can build pneumatic jacks that are much more powerful for 1/10 the price.

So how do i build a piston out of hardware store parts?

I know that i am going to need a body probably 1 inch pvc with 2 endcaps.

But the real problem is how do i create a good piston with a good seal against the pvc?


That is the problem, i need to know how to build this part, your help would be greatly appreciated.

I can imagine that being my nickname in a rural town.

Lol, when I saw this thread, I thought exactly the same thing. Pnuematic - Jack, Help!!

Insert a hyphen so it reads "Pnuematic Jack - help."

I'm more disturbed about the primary school part. . .


The piston could be cast from epoxy with O-ring seals or neoprene seals,there are plenty of ways to do it there is a greta amount of information on this website that you can search through.Why should we do the searching for you?

I live in a rural town,you don't want to know my nick name. . .

Ha, twas gonna bring that up :)

6000+ Spudbux, one old custom title and a possible new nick name for JSR....


Anyway, I think you should look at a thread on here about Pogo Sticks, probably similar in what you want to look at.

He's Half-Kiwi I tell you! :D

As soon as I saw Pneumatic Jack's post, I knew I was going to be the butt of hundreds of sheep-shagging jokes :wink:


Back on topic, perhaps :roll:

sorry hehe


Oh come on, i'd give you any city south or north of Auckland, but not Auckland it's self :D

And that's why the rest of the country hates us... Because we don't share their love with sheep... :roll:


Edit: Oh and can you give us some more specs on what you want, maybe a design or two?
