    Can anybody recommend a source for electrically actuated air valves? The
    air source is currently 90psi but will likely be regulated to less, as the
    job does not require that much pressure.

    Thanks,

    Well I don't know if this will help much, but I got a dozen electric
    valves on e-bay. The seller didn't know what they manufactured for, but I
    found out they were pressure relief valves for fuel tanks. I got them to
    make a mechanical bottle rocket launcher, but I have gotten around to it
    yet.

    Good Luck!

  4. Can anybody recommend a source for electrically actuated air valves? The
    Search for "solenoid valve". Surplus vendors such as mpja.com
    sometimes carry them, if you want small quantities. I buy mine from
    McMaster-Carr <http://www.mcmaster.com/>, which is an industrial
    supply house carrying everything you could want for building your
    pneumatic system. Prices are reasonable but not exactly "cheap".

    Sure, the most common brand is ASCO, but you can probably find others
    by Googling on "solenoid valves".
