Picture of Atari iPod Dock
Ive been on instructables for a few years but I never got along to making one. Last week i decided to make a dock for my new iPod Touch, so I figured that i could try making an instructable for it.

Step 1: Supplies

To make the dock you will need the following:
iPod
atari game
philips head screwdriver (X head)
flat file & round file (i couldnt find these for the picture)
ipod usb cord (the new one without the release buttons)
glue (i used gorilla glue)
x-acto knife
metal shears (couldnt find these for the picture either)

Step 3: Step 2: Make a hole for the usb cord

In the middle of the front plate trace the outline of the plug (trace the one that goes into the iPod). Try to get the tracing as close to the center as possible, for this will look much better in the end. Once you have an outline cut it out with the x-acto knife, if you are impatient (like me) try using a dremel tool. When you get a rough shape of the plug begin to use the files to create a hole where the plug can fit snugly into place.

my atari games aren't like that, I think you are using an atari 5200 game, am I correct?
