Looks like https://www.vexrobotics.com/276-2600.html but a lot cooler. Well done!

I'm guessing 25 lbs?

What led you guys to go with "The Claw" design? The machining certainly looks cool!

We decided that we wanted to go with a claw for our intake system at the start of the season. I had no idea how to make a claw so I based it off the VEX Claw and the ToughBox Mini.

Re: pic: Our team's claw

This thing is beautiful and horrifying at the same time. I would not like to have it snap shut on my leg. Well done.

Replacing your pivots/shafts with (at minimum) aluminum bolts should drop a pound or so off the weight. I would be tempted to go with Nylon bolts for all except the 4 closest pivots (orientating off the photo) and aluminum on the furthest 4. Of course make the decision based off of your intuition & resources.
Just my $0.02

Re: pic: Our team's claw

How much have you tested it on the cubes?

Looks like it could do some damage.

If you have been able to get some driver testing on this so far, how is the driver liking it?
