Shhhhhh... don't tell anyone, but I'll be paying a visit to the local AutoZone when I'm ready for them
... As far as the throw, I think you can get them with a lock-out, so they are adjustable.
lbs of pressure??? I don't need no stinking pounds of pressure
... If it flies open, the quicker I can get inside right?
But in all seriousness, I'm far from getting exactly to that point, but just wanted to expose the idea. The catch is going to be the tricky part. I want something simple, but don't think that is going to be the solution.. I was looking at some servos from a CDRom drive, but that wouldn't work(or would it?)
