Mounting the hand to an arm

Shadow Robot supplies an elbow adaptor plate to adapt the Hand to most robot arms. The Hand’s elbow plate contains eight screw holes which accept M6 bolts to a depth of 12mm. The holes are spaced equally from the centre on a circle with diameter 100mm. The overall diameter of the elbow plate is 135mm
