    l found these on ebay

    end stroke valves an inlet and an outlet port that are normally closed to each other until you push the plunger where the rubber gaiter is then its open straight through,
    these seem to retail about £60 but Harrier were selling them at £4.99 each, worth a punt at that price l thought
    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/250947392813?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1497.l2649

    plan is to mount it on the cylinder so as l can end the stroke when the sliding collar runs into it, that way l can do repeatable bends by just pressing the pedal until it stops,

    if l put a tee connector on the inlet to the ram and run the hose up to this valve and the other side of the valve back to the tank then it should stop the ram when the adjustable stop strikes the plunger

    cheers Shox
    in good old blue peter fashion l made the degree wheel, l printed it and laminated it at work, any sign shop should be able to make one if you need one, if not l am sure l can print some more
