The T piece has cured, held together under testing and took loads more pressure than the switch.

Some thoughts about J5's neck;
each piston needs to be controlled individually, 1 switch for each piston, and the switch needs to be able to be placed in any of the up, down or stationary positions...
mmm...
...a control system for this is going to be complicated

...more thoughts about pneumatics;
an automatic compressor would be cool.

This is going to be very complicated.

I'm waiting for a Lego Pneumatic Air Lorry set to arrive... another Ebay purchase... the lorry has air tanks :)

Doh!
The video recorder has packed up again... drawn plans of J5 will have to wait til I can get to watch the film again... oh well... back to playing with the pneumatics :)
