How to Build a Pneumatic Tube System

I didn't know where to post this so I just went with general. We put together a nice tube system to save the shipping department from going up and down the stairs 100 times a day.

We've got a nice shop onsite and build all sorts of stuff to keep our business going so hopefully I'll post other stuff in the future too. This is our first video. Shows in great detail how to make a pneumatic tube system for real cheap and pretty quickly. Only basic tools needed.

Cool! Question/possible tip. Once it's sent one way, it doesn't go anywhere once turned off right.
Putting a short timer on it would allow you to press a button to send it and since it takes 5 seconds (as an example) to get there you could set the timer to 6 seconds and you wouldn't have to manually shut off the system each time. Basically an Auto shut off feature....
Might save wear/tear and the noise. :shrugs: Just ideas!
