    Thanks, that gear list is a great help. Now the question:

    What did you use to trigger the camera? The laser setup with phone app?

    Never mind, I found it elsewhere. Pluto trigger, $120 from Amazon or other sellers.

    So I built the launcher. I only had to buy some of the hardware. Had most of the wood lying around in my shop. I did make a couple of modifications to make it more rigid and reproducible. I used wood cross pieces rather than the metal strapping (which bends under tension). I put the electromagnet and metal bar in line with the “piston”. I also added guides for the piston to minimize wobble. It works great and is extremely reproducible. Since it was Halloween, I used candy corn, skittles and wrapped candies. The most time was spent picking up after each shot. Somehow I never recovered the same number of Skittles after each shot. Those buggers bounce all over the place.
