• Hi - We're having intermittent forum issues. Posts, alerts, and anything involving email like signing up or password changes are having problems but not for everyone or everywhere. Josh is working on it. No ETA right now. Thanks Josh - BTW this is a volunteer forum so SLA's are just best effort. EDIT -> I manually batch updated about 25 people stuck on the email notification. Try logging in now with your password. If you really can't get in contact us on facebook or if you know a forum member get them to ask us.

Nice work John. I'm going to copy it soon.

A good source for the linear shafts is used struts or shocks from a car/suv or whatever. I have been collecting them for years. The come in various diameters but i have some 16mm for this project.

Oh looks good. You decided to make separate button controls for control of the impact, is that because the impact didn't have a butterfly style control?
