Step 7: Making the pocket
Next, using superglue, glue together lower part of the tray and the upper part - making the pocket. Be careful when gluing - you don't want to have pocked misaligned. Leave it for 10 minutes, for glue to dry.
Heat up the awl (or find a small drill) on a flame (hold it for a minute, or even less). With heated awl, make two small holes (be careful not to make them too big - it should be big enough that the uninsulated wires can go through) on the bottom of the pocket you made earlier. It's not a bad idea to try on that tray part that you saved (experimenting purposes! :)). That way you'll be sure you heated the awl enough, and learn how much of force is needed to make a hole. Since it's more "melting" hole than piercing, you'll have some leftovers around the holes. Cut them off with a knife.
Take off the insulation from "arms" of tripod, around 1 cm (0.39", or a bit less and put "pocket" on them. Secure wires with remaining two fasteners, as close as possible to the pocket. If you want, sou can return the insulation back on wires.
