5. Fabricating the Hands

This little post will be about making some hands and extra attachments for my third hand ++.  
As you can see from the picture above, I'm trying to make two different kinds of hands.  The top one has its teeth bent inwards so that they don't bit into whatever I'm working on.

I also soldered a banana jack onto the head of a 1/4"-20 bolt.  The reason for this is that the mounting screw hole on the bottom of most cameras, including mine, is a 1/4"-20 threaded hole (this means 1/4" diameter, 20 turns of threading per inch).  This little addon will allow me to put my camera on an arm for recording videos or whatnot.
