McMaster = expensive! NO! :D

There's always eBay, too.

Wait how fast do pneumatic cylinders actuate? Would it be in any way benificial to use one to actuate a piston valve? Has that been done before?

Not to sound nooby, but what is the bore a measurement of? It doesn't say on McMaster or Wikipedia.

The bore is the internal diameter of the cylinder. And a piston valve is essentially a big pneumatic cylinder in and of itself.

Yeah, but could using a pneumatic cylinder to actuate the piston help?

Yes...Look up Bimba. They are good.
They had a website like d_hall's GGDT.

Type in what you want and they send it to you.

Thanks John. I didn't see your post until now because it wasn't there when I started posting. The cylinders are cheaper, but if I get from McMaster shipping will be negligable because I make bulk orders regularly so the overall price will be about the same.

The selection on McMaster has things closer to what I was looking for anyway.

What is the shipping like on that site anyway so I know for if I do buy from them. Thanks.

Complex, what are the exact specs on the cylinder?

The shipping at SurplusCenter was really cheap IIRC

It's been a while, but I remember them being pretty good about it.
