    Do the edges of the aluminum poke you at all? I'd be tempted to rubberize the inside edges or pad them.

    I'd recommend filing the edges of the aluminum before attempting to bend. You should check out https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0N-3Z1O_EvE . Its a good tutorial on beginner level armoring.

    Cool design, must be fun to run around with a robot hand. Thanks for sharing!

    I did cut myself a few times in the process, so I decided to cut the pieces a little bigger so I could bend the edges inwards so it would be rounded and not sharp.
