What's this hand part called?

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…Continue

I ordered some K&S square brass tubing with a Rigid tube cutter.  No matter what I do, I always seem to compress the tubing -- and I need to fit it over a smaller tube.  The tool is also very…Continue

"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…"

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?Thanks,BryanSee More

"If in the US, you really can't do better than the Harbor Freight 2" benchtop cut-off saw. It is the very best bang for your buck. I probably use it more than any other single tool."

"Just wanted to follow-up.  I wound up purchasing a piercing saw with some #3/0 blades (and a vice).  I've had zero crimping.  Thanks for the suggestions."

""2 Bench Top Cut-off saw, 120 volts.  It's an extra appliance, but if the blade is fresh it makes a very clean cut.  If the blade is less fresh I have to file inside to be able to fit in a small brass tubing section."

"A bench top mini cut-off saw is small, fast, and easy for this task."

"Piercing saw!It's an extra tool, but not too expensive. Also called a jewellery saw I think. I use it a lot since I bought it. It makes very clean cuts. No crimping, no noise, and very minimal cleaning up to do afterwards.Hacksaw works fine…"

"I cut brass and aluminium tubing on a bandsaw.  No special hacksaw blade, just a wood cutting blade.  Then it does take a bit of cleaning up with a file.  But if I didn't have a bandsaw or a Dremel, I would use a hacksaw."

"I also use a hacksaw, but apparently the best way is to use a Dremel with a cutting blade. It is also important to have a small square file to be able to clean up the inside of the tube. Then it will fit nicely."

Pete Pipkins replied to Bryan's discussion Secret to cutting square brass tubing without crimping?
"Hi Cut it with a small hacksaw, hold it in a vice with square jaws, and cut close to the jaws. I'm not sure what you mean by a rigid tube cutter, but a hacksaw is best I would suggest. If you don't hold it in a vice, you'll just…"

"I know if you pack sand into tubing you can bend it without crimping. You could try packing sand into an offcut of tubing and see if that works?"

"Here's a video on lighting for stopmotion. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=fmFdb5_tatI&t=328s You can see that all sorts of lights can be used, not just the professional film lights. And if you use long exposures, you don't need…"

Lighting Recommendations?

I'm new to stop motion animation and photography.  I plan on animating a 1/6 scale set and a 1/12 scale set, but don't know what's required to light it.  (The 1/6 scale set will have an outdoor and indoor scene).I'll be shooting with a recently acquired Canon T6i and some used manual Nikkor lenses (24, 35, and 50mm).What type of lighting will I need?  I found some older threads, but LED lighting has gotten a lot better and cheaper since then.Also, I'm in the Tampa Bay area and would love to…See More
