Steampunk Hand in Walkthrough by aternox Steampunk Hand in Walkthrough by aternox
So here's how I made the hand for all those who asked.


And here's the finished product in motion

mistake caught! it's actually 52 eye bolts!

edit*

and for all those who will or have asked. It cost me under $50 Canadian to build. I don't know what it would cost in American as I don't live there, have the same stores, or really care. but you can just use google to convert the currency and give yourself a ballpark figure.

I'm not sure what size eye bolts I used anymore. But they were quite small. The washers were fender washers

Do finger-less gloves make a good alternative to cutting the tips off of the gloves?

Do you by chance recall what size each of the various bits were? The screws, eyebolts, washers, hinges, etc? You gave the measure of the plywood which is brilliant, and I'd love to try my hand at producing one as well~
