armature not attached
I haven't used these in an application yet, but it should be noted that the armature (the actuating pin of the solenoid) is not retained within the solenoid body. In other words, if there is no power to the device, the pin can fall out the back. If you plan to mount the solenoid vertically (with the pointy end facing upwards), you will need to have something behind the solenoid to keep the armature from falling out.

Player Piano
My project is also to turn my piano into a player piano. I would appreciate hearing from the person in Grenada Ms. who is doing the same thing. My email is cam 4443@juno.com. Charlie, Westwood Ma.

Perfect for my project
I am turning my piano into a player piano via solenoids and these were the cheapest I could find. I was skeptical at first because after applying 12 volts to it it was still very weak, but I cranked it up to around 30 volts and got them jumping perfectly. Only 86 more to buy...

Wimpy little solenoid
Very limited push power. Maybe 1/8 inch of stroke is usable for any kind of push. Will push very lightly on 2 D batts, stronger on a 9 volt batt and a bit more on a 12v SLA. Still wimply and no way to hold in the piston from falling out.

removable body?
can anyone tell me if you can remove the body or outer shell from this solenoid? all i need is the coil inside.
