Step 14: Assemble the claw

Picture of Assemble the claw

I used the cardboard model as a template when assembling the mouse claw. 

Steps -
- Hot glue a peice of plastic between the mouse parts to make a hinge
- Tape together the strips of duct tape to make more hinges
- Attach the motor to a scew - I used a peice of tubing which I filled with hot glue and quickly jammed over the motor shaft and the head of the screw.  The motor shaft already had a gear on it, I left that on.
-Mount the motor - I attached the motor to the plastic hinges with the small screws that where originally with the motor. The screw goes into a hole in the plastic hinge between the mice.
- Attach the hinges to the mice - I used some short sheet metal screws to attach the hinged plastic to the mice sheells.
