    =claw machine you could you it as a claw machine ill make one ill try to post.

    I wanna try and make it operable from behind but I will post pics for comments and advice. Hopefully sometime soon, but I have to do hw

    awesome! I added an extension so works longer!

    this is pretty cool but the arms look a little week :( i might build this sometime

    Somewhat rough and crude, but a good system - I could use it in something...

    This is fairly good. I like it. Adding parts to mechanically work it from behind would be useful though.
