Worst case scenario we could just bring in a good air compressor?I realize the challenge will be the penumatics and the mechanical construction. Will probably buy some parts and play around on a smaller model to start with. Again thank you for taking the time!

    Thank you! Good info!

    Yes an aluminum profile frame with a platform on ball bearings might be an easier solution as the Downunder has given me enough information on pneumatics to make me suspect it might require too much pressure to do this on a rig that should be able to be moved from the studio.Thank you so much for the sketch! Will certainly consider this approach!

    Your not the only one, i mean us not um. Time vs speed. .-)
