    I need to be able to move a few ounces, possibly up to a couple of
    pounds approximately 2" or less using electrical actuation.

    I've searched for electro-mechanical actuators on line, but it seems
    they are all designed for much more demanding applications. All I need
    is a bit of speed (2" in under a second), and at least reasonable
    durability. These would only be used perhaps once a month, and get
    cycled 30 times or so.

    Are there any resources for building your own?

    How about a pinball flipper mechanism and coil? may have what you need.
