Hi!, this is my first Instructable! Going to make a keychain with computer keys. It's simple, and can be completed in less than 15 minutes. Let there.
You need:
-The ring of a keychain
-Links (from a fine chain, for example)
-Computer keys (please, you don't remove the keys to your new computer =P)
-Barbecue skewer (or similar)
-Lighter
-Pliers

Sorry for my bad English, I'm Spanish!

Step 1: Make holes in the keys

First, heat the barbecue skewer with a lighter (about 10-15 seconds). Then, make a hole in the side of the key, pushing strong but slowly. Remove the skewer barbecue fast to avoid sticking. You can remove the remains of plastic with pliers.

Cool! , I have some old keys laying around , but ... Come on it is not a cake!

No estoy seguro , tengo que averiguar , y no te preocupes tu ingles es bueno
ok! your Spanish it's nice too!
i'm mexican , esta medio dificil que no sepa hablar espanol
Finally, a Mexican on the site!!!!<br /> YAY <br /> (sorry I saw the spanish writing and couldn't help myself) <br /> Mi ingles&nbsp;no es muy bueno, pero si estoy viviendo en los Estados Unidos me lo tengo que aprender no hehe =D<br />
it's not an april fools joke either.
On the right hand side, there should be a drop down bar that says something along the lines of: "Remove from contests"
You speak Spanish?
Yes, I AM Spanish =)!!<br/>
Yo hablo espanol tambien.
Pero, soy Americano. =]<br/>
My English isn't very good either<br /> yours is better then mine&nbsp; hehe =] <br /> BTW this is sooooo cool I'm making one with the tons of keyboards I've broken =] hehe<br />
Your English is easily understandable- it's better than some English-speaking people on this site because you take the time to use punctuation :)<br/><br/>I'd like to see this combined with <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.instructables.com/id/Mini-USB-drive-mod/">Flash drive in a Key</a>- a couple of bootable drives and several gigs of storage attached to your keys? Now that's geek cred!<br/>

It's interesting how many people say &quot;Sorry for my bad English, I'm Spanish/French/German/Chinese/Russian/from Mars.&quot; They then proceed to type more fluently than many English-speakers.<br/>

so true! I'm french, and in montreal, (bilingual city) and I always say that... we just can't help it... people feel so inadequate... lol<br /> <br /> WHO&nbsp;LIKED&nbsp;MY&nbsp;KEYCHAIN&nbsp;BESIDES&nbsp;THE&nbsp;AUTHOR??? I sure as hell do!! still have it... indestructable!! (i filled the back of the keys with epoxy!!! it'll never break!!<br />
It's probably because people with english as a second language stick more to the rules that they learned. Unlike many primary english speakersl
Mmmm, when I get a Flash drive I try! (now there's no money =P)<br/>
front is nice but back?
Well, back it isn't too nice, but that really matters? ;) <br />Anyway you could fill it whit silicone.<br />
&nbsp;&nbsp;Good idea but sillicone must be white, no limpid.&nbsp;P.S. What make key supr? I'm not have this button. &quot;Supr&quot; = &quot;delete&quot; &nbsp;?&nbsp;<br />
&nbsp;Yes. It's delete on a spanish keyboard.<br /> <br /> I also like the Bloq/Blog key on this one.<br />
I'm not sure if such a tiny amount of plastic counts, but wouldn't it be hazardous and toxic to melt the keys?<br />
I don't think so because I think that it didn't emit fumes when I do it, but you could use a mask if you want. If you do it carefully it won't be dangerous (like everything).<br />
Here's mine!
Great job! I love it ;) And with the panels you can make a wallet. I did it!
Me too!
Eu falo portugu&ecirc;s =)<br/>
Great Instructable I built mine in 3-5 minutes with a Dremel tool
It's too cool! good job!
sup guys... the one I made took only friggin five minutes to build, I was thinking of making one of those for quite a while now, and finally did!! here it is!
Great! and I love your other keychain =]<br/>
what, this mcdonalds tamagochi figurine?...<br/><br/>*joke* : It's been so long since I pressed on the reset button, that my tamagochi has cataracts (his eyes used to be black)<br/><br/>also, I took two separate chains that used to hold south park keychains to attach my ALT and DELETE buttons to the first one, witch is held to my keys by a hook screw that comes from a third keychain. to seal everything i filled the back of the buttons with 5 minute epoxy (holds the chains and screw in)<br/><br/>cheers!<br/>
<em>Sorry for my bad English, I'm Spanish!</em><br/><br/>You've nothing to apologize for. Here's the extent of my Spanish:<br/>Cuidado! Piso Mojado<br/><br/>Which according to the sign next to me means &quot;Caution! Wet Floor&quot; in English.<br/><br/>The only question I had was the title of <strong>Step 2: Unite the keys</strong>. At first I thought you meant <strong>untie the keys</strong> because I saw you pulling the chain links apart. Then I saw that there was more to the step.<br/>
This is uber-cool. Nice english, btw. Mine is gonna say, "G33K."
Mmmmm ... Now I want to make one with your idea! is great =)!<br/>
I made this, but can't get a decent pic to show you. Instead of making the holes with hot metal, I used a small bit on a power drill.
not problem, sure is very well =)! can also be done with the drill, but I had no one to hand = P.<br/>
Hey this is so cool, time to reveal the geek within me.
Genius idea - 'I Ctrl U' LOL gimme a few days to get a pic
Here it is. The second one is me wearing it with the rest of my geek key ring (the ends of wires like keyboard, headphones, etc.) It would also work with
Good job! Geeks to power! =)!<br/>
Mmm ...! I like it! I hope your photo =)!<br/>
I love G O HOME!
where do i get a 'supr' key???
Perhaps is &quot;delete&quot; in your keyboard =)!<br/>
