Step 1: Gather Your Materials.
1. A tin case; such as an Altoids case or a spice tin (if you can get the top off).
2. Some dental floss
3. A small spindle of some sort , or a bobbin (probably from a sewing machine)
4. Some solder
5. Tooth paste
6. tooth brush
7. tooth pick.
Step 2: Gather Your Tools.
1. A nail
2. A hack saw
3. A soldering iron
4. And some sort of blunt object you can hit the nail with (a hammer would be nice)
4.5 not pictured is a file
Step 3: Getting the Tooth Brush In.
Step 4: Creating the Floss Despenser.
Then you start to wrap the floss around the now slightly smaller bobbin and stick a piece of the solder through the center of it and somehow secure the bobbin in the center of the solder.
Then find some way of securing the floss cutter that you took off of the dental floss container to the tin. I just used glue but i did try to solder the two together.... needless to say, it didn't work.
Using your nail and, preferably a hammer, hit 3 holes in the tin. Two of which will have solder sticking out of it and the middle one will have the dental floss coming out of it. now use the soldering iron to flatten and secure the rods sticking out of the tin.
Step 5: Well...
there you have it. its your very own Nifty Little Dental hygiene Pocket Kit!
have fun and have fun traveling and making it on time.
*note* the wire doesn't need to be solder, it just has to be malleable enough to get through the holes and secure the bobbin.
