Project: Enter the USB was created by Kurtis Kronk for TheTechLounge.com. You can see the original article published online here.

One extra finishing touch that I didn't anticipate was that, when the E6000 had finished setting, it was a little higher than necessary around the edges and wasn't totally flat. To correct this, I got the Dremel back out and used the grinding stone to roughly get the edges level. Then I grabbed some sandpaper of various grits (from 400 ~ 2,000) and got the E6000 surface flat and smooth to my satisfaction.

It isn't perfect and, if I had it to do again, I would have thought of a better way to make the E6000 nice and level without having to take any corrective measures after the fact. I've also thought about whether I should have chosen an opaque filler material, but then there is the matter of painting it to match the key. Overall, I feel Project: Enter the USB was a success.

If you've got a great idea for a USB drive mod, I encourage you to give it a shot. It's cheap, relatively simple, and lots of fun. Feel free to share your mods in our forums, or even submit your worklog to be considered for posting on TheTechLounge. Have fun!
