Mechanical Hand

The latest arrivals to the automatomania collection are three antique prosthetic mechanical hands. The hands are sublime pieces of machinery in that they move all their digits and are made of light alloy, steel and wood (for the finger tips). The single cord operated hand sounds exactly like a rifle being cocked when operated to clench or unclench.
Hand with worm and sector removed.
