I am looking for sources for pneumatic prop armature / mechanism designs or better yet calculators.

There are some amazing mechanisms in home made props like the one in this thread:

I would love to see diagrams.


Here are a few very useful calculators I have run across if you don't already know them

I have not come across any calculators for mechanism design. Most are done either in a CAD program, on paper with Trig, or by trial and error. I honestly use all 3 methods depending on the application.
