So I'm buying all the supplies so I can start assembling the robot when it gets here however I'm a bit stuck on the gripper.
It looks like a pneumatic gripper is the way to go however I'm less clear on
1) What do you put on the end of them? I'm assuming you'd want a rubber/flexible material so that it can apply more pressure evenly? (And if so, where do you buy them)
2) There seem to be two kinds (angular and parallel). What are the trade offs between these two type?
3) This is probably the biggest one I'm struggling with. For the air supply, can I get away with a regular air compressor that I have in the tool shop or is there a specific style/type I should purchase?
4) Finally! Is there a source (website, youtube channel, etc.) that anyone would recommend I visit to learn more?
