    • Dress appropriately.  It should not be a “messy” lab, but you may wish to wear appropriate clothing (some of the hand tools may have some residual grease on them).

    • Video:  See what the lab is going to look like

Part Two: Make Some Fingers!

    • Show your TA/Instructor the completed pieces

Video:    Cutting and assembling the finger!

A template for this model is provided on your work bench.
