Heavy Duty Mechanical Components

Hey Guys,

I'm looking to make a semi-functional heavy duty robotic arm.  It's for an art project so it won't need absolute precision, it's more for aesthetics and entertainment.  The arm could potentially be 4-5 feet but it wouldn't need to lift anything except itself or a flashlight.

I have a handle on programming, metal fabrication, and electronics.
