Step 13: Prepare the peices of the claw

Picture of Prepare the peices of the claw
 Now that we have some strips of plastic they will need to be cut to useful sizes.  I am using some thin plastic so I cut them easly with light duty tin snips (we keep a pair in the kitchen).  I based the lengths roughly on the paper model. 

Here is the cut-list -
            - the peice that the motor mounts to is about 3.25" X 1.25"
            - the two side peices are about 4"X 0.75"

Then you need to drill some holes. 
The motor I am using is from a printer/scanner.  It has a gear already on it that is 10mm wide.  It also has 2 mounting holoes that are spaced 20mm apart.
