Either way remember to drive it like a relay with a big enough transistor/FET and a free-wheeling diode.

I might not control it from the Arduino at all, might just switch it manually straight from its power. Bit of a hassle that these things seem to be 12v (it has no label though), but I tested it at 6v which is what the rest of the kit will use and it does work... I suppose it might not be as strong at low voltages but I want it to be able to lift a few washers or panel pins is all.
