The full size box and the right small have this "T" part in it that is hovering above the bottom surface. I'm not sure what it is there for but you should remove it or have it attached to the box. Also It's not in any of your photos just the part pictures.

the hand file isnt downloading correctly

Try Save as. It was opening in my browser as text for some reason although most of the others would download. I have seen that before.

This is a really nice execution! Would it be possible to post the CAD file(s) soon? I'm sure there are a lot of people (myself included) who would love to have access to them. Thanks!

Files coming now. The only one not uploaded yet is the arm. I had to cut off the end because of the angle and that is when I decided to attach a hand on the end. I will change the cad file to have the right length. The hand is already uploaded. I just superglued it on.

HA! I loved the red (angry) and green (happy) LED through the arm/hand! :)
That is a really nice touch to it!

I might see if your arm will modify to fit a hacked servo & lasercut version from Thingiverse - i made one of those.

Yeah, it makes it. I used some cheap fiber optic from one of those lit Christmas trees and ran it along the underside to the fingertips. The last part of the video shows it best.

I hope to find time this weekend to get the files uploaded with some instructions.

This reminds me of a "piggy bank" I had when I was a kid. It was a coffin that had that same type of hand and it would come out and grab the coin you placed on top and pull it inside.

Exactly. I went by my sisters last night to get a haircut and showed her. I had the same flashback and said the same thing. I guess that shows our age.
