This is an instructable on how to make the second book in my Antagonistic Books set (the one that can only be opened once). This one is pretty easy (although it requires basic knowledge of welding). Besides that, theres only one hiccup that can happen, and I'll cover that.
Step 1: Materials
Two metal plates cut to the same size.
A Bi-Directional Ratchet
A place to weld
Pages to put inside your book
(potentially you may also need a wrench and a needle or awl)
Step 2: Cut down the metal
Sorry I don't have a lot of photos for this intractable. What you want to do here is cut down the front cover of your book so that there is space for the rachet to fit comfortably above it.
Optionally, if you want to make a more secure book, you may want to have a second ratchet on the bottom side of your book, if so, obviously you will have to cut down your front cover even more
Step 3: Weld the metal to the ratchet
This is all pretty self explanatory, but basically you will want to weld the ratchet body to your back cover, and then weld your front cover to the tool attachment point on your ratchet.
