Hey all, this is my first concept of a manual mechanical claw that a person could use...
It uses a somewhat strange principle and I'm aware of the changes that improve functionality...
There isn't a prototype yet, but once I get enough funds to buy 4 bike breaks.
Anyways this is just for the community of Instructables.
Any ideas are welcomed.
Criticism is welcomed also! :)
I'd really love to see what you think about this, and I've got a feeling its going to work just the way I have imagined it.
And now with the explanation!
First of we've got a block (wooden, metal) that is the base of the claw. On it is found a handle with a lever for using the claw.
The claw is consisted of two metal handles that are placed on the base block. They are held together by screws and I've still got to work out this part so any help is quite welcome. The main principle is the squeeze that is produced by the breaks when the cables are pulled by the lever on the handle. That's it!
