Solenoid / Pen Control


I'm investigating the implementation of up/down pen controls for my PicoBorg turtle

Does anyone know where I can source s suitable solenoid or actuator to control the up/down movement for this? So far I haven't been able to find anything suitable.

The difficulty here is locating a 3v solenoid to go with the supplied battery pack.

This seems like it might be a good option:
I would give it a go if it were for myself, no guarantees though (people do get things confused on Ebay from time to time).

You will need to mount the pen so it is close to the drawing surface (say 5 mm away) so that it touches when activated.

Thanks, I might give this a try...
