CW Feet and Hand Assembly Instructions: Posted on 27 Apr 13:51
NOTE: This is a retired product and are only available through Gear4Geeks.com until they sell out.
You're going to need sprue snips or clippers, a screwdriver, and possibly a knife:
Starting with the foot kit: trim off all the sprues and clean off any flashing:
Insert the ball into it's joint piece and screw the two pieces together until the ball is at your preferred tightness. Joint stiffness can be altered at any time by tightening or loosening the screws. Over-tightening will result in stripped screw holes:
Insert the small side pieces into the larger side piece with the flat side facing out, and the angled peg facing forward:
Insert the longer 5MM peg into the ball assembly as shown, with the rounded/longer section of the assembly facing forward:
Attach the toe base onto the shorter 5MM peg, then attach the reverse side:
Press fit the tops of the toes into place, and slide on the top of the toe guards. Being mindful of which direction the small angled pegs are facing:
Cut the optional hoses to length and insert them into the three sections on the bottom of the feet:
Feet are finished.
Now for the Hands:
Starting with the thumb sprues (the ones on the left in the first picture), detach the pieces and assemble them as shown. There is a front and back to all the fingers, so watch which direction everything is attached. Use the sprue marks as an easy way to keep the pieces all facing the proper directions.
Also slide the wrist joint onto the palm pieces.
Set the thumbs and palms aside and screw together the lower two pieces of the rest of the fingers. Keep the finger tips on their sprues for now.
Sprue marks go up for the base, and down for the middle segment.
Remove the top four finger tips from their sprues and attach them (sprue marks facing down). These are the pointer and ring fingers:
Do the same for the pinky and middle fingers. Being sure not to mix them up.
Fingers can be add onto the hand in any oriantation you'd prefer the screws to be facing. As shown in the pictures the screws all face toward the center but the fingers are designed to be mixed and matched however you'd like.
Same is true for the thumb. Screws can either facing up or down, depending on which hand you attach the thumb to.
Press the palm faces together and tighten the two screws for each hand.
Flip the palms over and press in the colored hand plate.
Some limbs may require you to trim down the 5MM peg length to eliminate any gaps. The 5MM pegs are designed to be longer to let you choose how long you'd like them to be, or for custom applications.
