Well, I've wanted to do one for a long time, but couldn't come up with a good case. I looked around my office, and found nothing worthy. Then I started to think about the basement. My tote filled with useless computer parts that the geek in me won't let go of. Then it hit me.
I HAVE AN OLD CUECAT! And the 1 Gig CueCat was born.
Step 1: Gather your parts
I also used some of the following things that are not pictured:
-- Leatherman--you'll see him later
-- hot glue gun
-- modeling glue
-- various small screwdrivers
Step 2: Disassmebly: CueCat
You may find that you have to get a small flat head screwdriver and gently pry it apart, or you may be able to take it apart with your hands.
When you open it up, you'll see that the "tail" is attached to the circuit board, and has to be cut. Once cut, the cord would not slip out. I decided I wanted to have the butt plug in place on the finished product, so I needed to get this out. A little pulling, and it broke out.
I lucked out big time, too. I thought I was going to have to gut it completely, and find a way to mount the flash drive in there. Turns out it comes with a little black box up front that worked really well as a mount/encasement for the drive. More on that later.
