I'm looking for a pneumatic cylinder with about an inch stroke, 3/4" bore, and a rod about 3/16" in diameter. The front of the cylinder and the tip of the rod need to be threaded.

The question here, is where is a good online place to buy cylinders. Plow, I remember a long time ago, you linked me to a store that had a pretty good selection. Do you still know where that is?

Thanks.

It can be either double-acting or spring-return push-type. I'd prefer spring though.

You sure about that? If they are on there, they certainly aren't obvious.

Yes I'm sure. On the left of every page there is an adds by google section. Different ones for every page. Clippard Minimatic has what you need I think.

McMaster... Wow. It didn't even cross my mind. Amazing. And I order from them about once a week.

Thanks Drew.

I am such an idiot...
