Unfortunately I don't have any pictures of the inside. I'm thinking of making another one, witch I'll document better, but momentairly I don't have time because I'm renovating the house...If you have any questions please post them an I will try to answer. Thank you for the comments.
lol first time I've seen this typo/misnomer. witch -> magic practitioner; which -> interrogative pronoun/determiner
My question is, how did you mount the drive inside the copper? You have really inspired me. I've heard the term &quot;Steampunk&quot; for years but only today did I really &quot;Get it&quot;. I used to love the TV show Wild, Wild, West because of the technology, but never knew it had a name. Based on your design...I'm creating one of the old &quot;Vacuum tube flash drives&quot;...you know, like we had back in the 60s...LOL. I'd love any suggestions you could offer. I love fabrication but for some reason I'm stumped for a safe way to mount the drive into the housing.<br><br>Wes<br><br>Doctor90250@yahoo.com
This is an original design you got there. I don't think it would be that practical to carry it arond but it certainly looks awesome.<br><br>As far as mounting the drive...I've used silicone to hold it in place. The silicone also protects the drive from heat as I soldered the las pieces of copper. I have two other instructables on USB steampunk that are better detailed then this one : <br><br>http://www.instructables.com/id/Make-your-own-steampunk-USB/<br><br>http://www.instructables.com/id/4Gb-Steampunk-USB-flash-drive/<br><br>I hope this helped and I am really curious to see the end result of your work.<br><br>
I've made a new instructable with this USB flash drive. I've explained there the making process by adding some new photos. I hope it will answer some questions. You can find the new instructable here : http://www.instructables.com/id/4Gb-Steampunk-USB-flash-drive/
Great! How do you build it?!?!
<br> Mmm, that is nice.<br> <br> L<br>
Very nice, I love it!
Gorgeous! I especially like that you wired (or aligned?) the activity LED with the crystal sphere. <br><br>Did you take any pictures of the process as you dismantled the USB stick and built the new case around it? It'd be awesome to put together a real Instructable showing how you made it, in addition to this great slideshow.
