If you are considering using pneumatics on your robot this year, I have a deal for you …
A team that I worked with last season has some left over parts that we would like to sell. This package will give you everything you need to add pneumatics to your robot:
1 Full Single Acting Pneumatics Kit
Everything in the kit is BRAND NEW in original packaging, except for the air tank. $180
The tank already has the schrader value and fitting installed
1 Extra air tank - with 2 fittings installed $24.50
Purchased through PLC:
2 packages of 5’ of pneumatic tubing $10
1 piece of 10’ of pneumatic tubing (Vex legal)
Purchased from local distributor $10
1 (4-pack) of 36” 3-Wire extension cables $8
Total cost from VexRobotics Store: $232.50
Your price: $200.00 (plus exact cost of shipping)
Also, if you are interested, I have a ‘Topeak Joe Blow Sport II’ air pump - only used for testing. In like new condition. Here is a link:
Another team I worked with used one of these pumps throughout the Toss Up season and found it to be perfect for Vex Robotics pneumatics - great seal on the schrader valve.
Cost at Amazon: $50.
If you would like to purchase it with the other pneumatics above, I’ll add it in for $40, for a total cost of $240 (plus exact cost of shipping).
Please contact me off list at Irv (at) furrypants (dot) com
I will update this thread when these items sell.
