Useful Info For Getting Started in Pneumatics

Post by Steve Halstaff Koci » Tue Apr 19, 2016 4:10 pm

I put this list together for the Pneumatics Forum on Haunt Forum, which I moderate - I hope it will be useful here as well.
I thought it would be appropriate to start a thread with some useful links to tutorials, info and resources for getting started with pneumatics. This forum is a wealth of knowledge with plenty of ideas and people willing to help and we hope you take full advantage of all that is available here. For more info, take a look at the following links that should answer most questions however please ask if you have questions or anything is unclear.
First are several outstanding links to tutorials on pneumatics -
Dead Things did a 5 part video broken down into the different systems involved and can be found posted on this forum at
SkeletalRemains wrote a very good primer at ... post670525
Another good one was done by Wolfstone and can be found at Enter the site, go to the technology section and then find the compressed air section under the course animation section.
One more, an olde but goodie at
A nice article from Nuts and Volts can be found at
Fright Props stocks everything you need to put a pneumatic project together and has plenty of how to videos at and Scary Guys at
Another great supplier of pneumatic components is AutomationDirect and can be found at ... Components They also have a how to video series on YouTube.

A useful pneumatic calculator can be found at
