OK, here we go!
What is needed:
- Burned-out light bulb (mine was from Philips, 12V 21W E1)
- USB Memory drive of course (Recon Data 2GB, Hynix module inside)
- Electric pliers
- Electric wire cutters
- Some screwdriver
- Engraving pen for metal
- Soldering iron and tin wire
- Insulating tape
- Little file
Let's start! ->
Step 1: USB memory drive disassembling
In order to take off the two plastic caps, we can use first a cutter and finally the knife, pics 3 & 4.
Now we can remove memory drive from aluminium shell, pic 5.
This time, pull away the two pins from the back plastic cap, pic 6 & 7.
In the last pic the naked memory drive!
Step 2: Working on the light bulb: Measurement!
First of all use caliper to determinate width of memory drive PCB (Printed Circuit Board). Then compare measure just obtained, on light bulb diameter in order to find right point where bulb will be saw... In this case, I got 14 mm width for PCB. Take notice that thickness of glass bulb is around 0.75 mm, so it means that I should have determinate a diameter on the bulb bigger than 15.5 mm in order to be sure that memory drive will go into the bulb. Well, note down measurement...
