I have been working on a wooden set, and I have some pretty good plans, if you can wait until next week, I will share everything I have with you.
It's all based off a screen used single claw a friend of mine bought! I keep thinking I might just buy it from him and direct cast it. Who knows! I haven't decided! LOL

I don't mean to hijack or anything, but keep me in mind too. I'd like a set of claws for a project.

thanks for the help but i did not get the PM

I have a template I found a few years ago (jpg) that I have made a few sets from. I cannot say how accurate it is, but I did redraw it in CAD so if anyone wants either PM me your email address.
I just don't want to post it since I did not create the original JPG.

I would be interested in this template as well. I am currently working on a set of balsa wood claws but now would need a more accurate size. The one single claw that I have created from wood is a good size but seems too long. My intention is to create the claws from balsa wood, sand them, and find some sort of hardening material to dip them. Resand, primer, and paint with silver.
If I could only figure out what source to use to harden said claws?

A good length is just a bit shorter than from inner elbow bend to wrist, as that is the storing area for the blades when not in use, with spring and tendons and the activation system taking into account as well.
People who make model planes should know of ways to strengthen the wood. From what I've read - and I'm by no means knowledgeable about it - the wood is sanded smooth and then when the final shape is achieved it is dipped in wood glue or starch of some kind. I'm sure others can be more specific on what to use.

This thread has been dead for well over a year but i thought id reopen as im now in need of the templates. Does anyone have a link to the tamplates? If so could you post here as opposed to IM. So everyone can access them? Thank you to any responses.
