    BTW first post...

    Glad to become part of the community. I think you will be hearing more from us in the near future.

    Hydraulic cylinders like the one on the Thermal Take Tai-Chi...

    Probably the quickest and easiest way is to hit the local auto parts store. Those cylinders are used on a lot of things. They should have a source that offers a wide selection of after market ones. You will have to figure out your length and how much power it needs to have. I can not recall the name brand I use to deal with (been to many years ago).

    You can find them via google with the keywords of "Gas Springs" or "Gas Struts".

    And if you want to get really fancy (and more expensive) you can use a linear actuator instead....Then you can automatically open and close stuff....

    BTW, Can you share what you will use it for?

    I am starting to put A + B together for a Lamborghini case. The Hydro for Suicide Door style side panels.

    I may have to engineer my own hinges (Out then up). I have to finish my current project first...should be starting in the Spring.

    Just getting my ducks in a row....
