Just wondering what the crushing mechanism is going to be, is it a lead screw that's connected to the crushing jaw on a bearing? Looks really nice so far.

The claw is mounted to a shaft that runs between the gap formed by the two metal plates. The shaft is supported by two bearings on either side.
