Actuators

Anyone want some strong electrical rams for free (@platinumnqueen22 ?)
They are medical quality and have the control box etc with them.

Let me know and I can drop them off at the space (not to stay there !) or pickup from Bromley BR2.

I can get bin loads of them if needed…

Yes please! I am making a table which rises out of the floor. The table itself is fine (converted from a hydraulic mortuary trolley) but my attempts to open the trap doors above it with horizontal blocks and tackle are not going too well. I would need four with about 25cm throw and able to pull at least 300N.

I am not a member but I can get a member to vouch for me if necessary.

Oh and said table could also benefit from flaps at the side which extend once it has risen. I don’t want to be greedy but “bin loads”… :crazy_face:

(Off-topic: I have also bought a second-hand car hydraulic roof pump and actuators to play with, but then discovered the hoses aren’t compatible and it’s all a bit hard. People don’t seem to repurpose these - I wonder why…)

Hi Any more actuators available ?


(Paul Court) #12

@platinumnqueen22 took the bigger one. As a member maybe @Frazer should have the two smaller ones that are on the front window sill.
I’ll ask my mate for more as I know a few people want them @Tariq and @Matthew

Thanks Courty,

I’m intending to put them on my doors so I can ventilate my greenhouses in hot weather!

Shouldn’t have a problem, they’re designed to lift a hospital bed inc patient…

Maybe you’ll need a rain sensor too, so that they can close up rapidly to protect themselves in case of a shower!
