Bullet Cartridge USB Drive


Step 4: Decorating

Picture of Decorating
I love to shoot; obviously why I have brass laying around.  So I decided to use the head stamp of a bullet.  I dug through my brass pile until I found a 38 Special with good markings and a silver primer. 

1)  Cut and remove the excess brass.  I used a jar opener to prevent the pliers from digging in.

2)  Grind the backside of the stamp until flush.  This was the most challenging of the process.  If I used pliers to hold the piece on the grinder it dug in and ruined the sides.  I ended up just holding it by hand and going really slow so it didn't heat up.

3)  Solder the piece on the cover.
