    Hmm... if the jaw is for clamping, I guess using a drill motor would be enough but won't have much in the way of crushing effectiveness though I guess that isn't what you are going for. The threaded...

    As far as I'm aware, you're right about there not being a specific stopping mechanism Jamie. When I've tested Neophyte in the past with the locking bar in the actuator has simply stopped, which I...

    Personally, I think the method you suggested would work as per the CAD diagram you posted You'd want a multi-stage spur gearbox to make it work rather than a planetary if horiztonal space is an issue.
