Looking at making my own electric centerstand, does anybody have any blueprints or part numbers to get me going in the right direction?

i have thought about this also, i was thinking of buying a manual stand from fleabay cheaper the better and then fabricating off that i seen them for under 75 bucks. That might be way to go then after that look for an air piston or cylinder to operate it.

Ebay but probably not many for $30. They're normally $100+

It's easier to buy one from one of the three manufacturers

I would think 4" would give you way too much stroke(that aint what she said). Your throw arm would be way too long. may want to consider 2"

I will be working on converting my cable operated stand to a 12V electronic actuated stand this winter. After messing with mine some last season, I determined there is not much room to work or tuck an actuator between the primary and trans, so I looked for a small footprint actuator with a 2" stroke that also had an external water\dirt rating. I think the one I found may be used by some of the builders, but never got any confirmation.

You're kinda right, but 4" is way to long and it will also be slow.

I used 2" with 33#'s of force so it would be fast.. and the arm on the shaft didn't have to be giant.
