I'm trying to construct a hand that's capable gripping objects (that my model will carry around). On Instagram I saw two excellent fabricators post pictures of their hands. Does anyone know what parts they are using for their hand plates -- I assume these are threaded?
Looks to me like a bespoke piece - a 3mm nut brazed onto a thin washer with the rod for the joint brazed on as well. Might be possible to adapt a 3mm T nut to make something similar, then it is just a matter of brazing on the rod, or wrapping aluminium wire round and gluing with metal epoxy.
Thanks, Simon! I'll see what I can come up with.
