Here is a link to a video of my progress so far, I still need to get the servo for the up and down movement.

Please forgive the crud diagram that i am using, i don't have a good program to post this with ( using windows paint). The idea was in my head before i even made this, it is the same concept I have used when i was younger when i made homemade tattoo kits.


take your basic motor/servo with a lot of torque at a low speed with a pressure switch ( got mine from an old hopper from a paintball gun) and use it with the mechanics in this post. More diagrams coming, I will be making a video of mine soon.
The good thing about this is you don't need a directional servo, once you find the right torqued ( and speed) motor the movement will depend on the reenactment of the pressure switch or eye switch (from the paintball hopper)

The up and down motion (mechanics) will be the same as the side to side just mounted different. I have already made one with the side to side motion and it works great, I have to go to my local paintball place to rip open the other hopper to get that motor for this one.


I hope I'm not confusing you all, it will make since eventually...
