dude..... you just gave me the awesomeoust idea... so i drew it on paint.... PAINT ROXXORZ FTW! ... sorry had to get that outta my system. But yeah, i think itd be simpler than making a hand... and itd just be the coolest thing in the world to have a mechanical hand with 6inch knives for fingers.

... freddy kuegur? I hope I spelled that right.
It's kruger but that doesn't matter it's still the same kknife weilding mass murderer we know and love <3
dont know... kuegur doesnt look too right but..... i might be wrong.
dont forget the flame thrower wich u can easily make out of low cost butane burner.. its nothing without the flame thrower PS. u can get powerfull lasers out of dvd burners (they can even light a match)
sorry forgot the spring in the pic

Ive found that u can use a bicycle chain with a ribon or similar threaded through and then attached to one end makes a very good finger when the ribon is pulled. with a bit of welding u can make larger sections rigid and stop the finger bending the wrong way. this is a bit harder though but gives a nicer result. Sorry i dont have any pics at the mo. I think the mythbusters did a similar thing once

Ya they did. During the Ninja Special Adam and Jamie were trying to catch an arrow with a hand built with that technique
Abominatus fd937 years ago
on a previous episode adam explained how the hand he made actually go him the job on mythbusters!
you are weird.

Nice instructable. I tried something similar on a smaller scale with some sheet copper and steel, but couldn't find anything decent for the pull-strings...

I gave it to my friend, so I don't have it any more, but I think it was between 15 and 22 pounds.
