Here are my homemade claws. I decided to make "chess tongs" to go along with them. I cast both the claws and the tongs and they are available for purchase through the B9 builders club.

Above is my drawing of the claws made traced from a photo of the robots claws. Feel free to us it if you decide to make your own. Mark W's how to on the club site is a perfect way to make your own. After you download it make sure you size it up so the straight parts are 1" across.

The microcontrollers I will be using with my robot will do many things, one of them is to open and close his claws. Here are 2 pictures showing how I set up my servos onto Bill K wrists.
