Pocket Sized Contest

For this simple instructable, I take an empty bullet shell an turn it until a very useful pocket tool.

Step 1: Supplies

The first thing you're going to need to do is gather you supplies. You will need epoxy, an empty bullet shell, a philips head screw driver drill bit. 

Step 2: Mix the Epoxy

Mix the epoxy with a Q-tip. Make sure you don't let it touch your hands and open a window. This stuff is like smelly super glue.

Step 3: Inserting the Drill Bit

Rub the epoxy all over the part of the drill bit that would usually be inside the drill. Place the drill bit inside the empty shell with the screw driver part sticking out, It should fit snugly.

Step 4: Finished!

Now you're finished!!! Be sure to allow 24 hours for the epoxy to cure.

You might want to consider placing a metal rod in the shell before gluing the tip in place. This would give the tip more support when you're applying a lot of force to a stubborn screw.

Hey, I made the pen version of this!


I also used a 7.62mm shell from either an r1 assault rifle or an AK.

I want to "be nice" but I have such a problem with somehow ligitamising the use of firearems....

That would be cool but I don't have very much experience with lasers.
