Hey guys,

Just wondering were i can get Lego Pneumatic actuators, pumps and switches?

I need it for an assignment at school.

My plan is to make this:

And get it to run in a boat.

Also was wondering what psi would these things run?

Thanks

Praneet

Not sure what the PSI rating would be but sourcing the pumps are only a stone's throw away at Bricklink.

http://www.bricklink.com/

Very reputable site and have bought from them too many times that I've lost count. Never had any issues whatsoever and can recommend sellers for you if you so wish.

Ebay have some bargains from time to time and can keep an eye out for you if you know what you want exactly. If not, I can throw some part numbers your way to help you narrow it down a bit....:)


EDIT:

Seems you will need these two parts going by video:

http://www.bricklink.com/catalogList.as ... matic+pump (Probably not this one but threw it in for good measures)
http://www.bricklink.com/catalogList.as ... c+cylinder
http://www.bricklink.com/catalogList.as ... tic+Switch
http://www.bricklink.com/catalogList.asp?q=Pneumatic (Pretty much the whole kit and kaboodle)

I'd say this is the pump you'll be looking at:

This switch would be better suited to that confiuration in video:
