Hi, Franny!
Love the build so far. I just wanted to chime in to say that the actuators that you are using have been around for many years. They were called "Swingee's". Ace had them and now Hobby Lobby sells them under the name "Beckman Concealed Actuators.". The gentlmans post above mine sounded as if he might be looking for a set.
Lastly, you mentioned a bit of play in them and I noticed that years ago when I first saw them and worried about flutter which prevented me from using them. Any thoughts about that?
