Pneumatics on other sites

So far I’ve managed to find all the parts in the single acting pneumatic kit except for three, the tire pump fitting and the two cylinder mounts. Anybody know where I can find them?

I can’t help you with the three your missing, but where did you find all the other parts? From this post?

no i searched the part numbers on the plc center. i can post the links if you want

This is a similar valve to the one currently used in the VEX Pneumatics System.

You should be able to work your way around the mounts, and use a different method for attaching the cylinders.

Hope this helps.


The mounts aren’t sold (I believe) those are made by VEX? Correct me if I’m wrong. :slight_smile:

I just custom made some mounts out of lexan or plastics. They work great if done right.

That is correct Andrew, custom made by VEX.
Is possible to build a similar mount out of VEX structure, like using parts of a flexible 1x25 Bar.

Using Lexan to build the mounts is also a good idea.


Lucky colleges get plastic because the rest of us dont want to waste our precious lexan

Why not offer them as a seperate part? I know there are business reasons but I think it would be quite awesome if this were to be done. :slight_smile:

If you do it right you shouldn’t need one or you can make one very small mount. I guess it depends mainly on the mechanism.

What I’m doing is drilling the hole to .25 and using standoff to mount them.

Could you please post the results of your search? You will save many of us a bit of time! Thank you!:smiley:

I found the bike valve at o’riley’s autobparts but I’m sure u could find it at any generic auto parts store
