zombie scissor lifter from chair... or Zeek as we have decided to call him

This is this year's addition... pretty straight forward chair mounted scissor pneumatic prop. In the vid, the pressure is a little low, so he will be faster on Halloween. Only unique addition is that I have the shoulder joint protruding and connected by a string so when it reaches full extension, the arms yank up - similar set up with the head.


or if that doesn't work just search "zombie scissor lifter" and that should get you there

I like this and I was waiting for a big jump but I feel like it might be a little slow for my tastes.
That said.. I haven't done ANY pnuematics yet and I am dying to learn.

Can this be made faster to the point of being dangerous?
Is it a matter of air pressure... mechanical leverage.. or both?
like I mentioned, was run with low PSI, it goes fast enough at full that you would have to have the chair bolted to the floor and it launches pretty violently... after Saturday I will post a better vid and also some close ups...
