Network Cards Notebook

This is an easy one, but all your geeky friends will want it.

You need:
- two network cards (or something similar, a circuit board with a regular size)
- paper (the easy way is to cut an old notebook)
- a spiral (same as before)

Step 1: "Clean" the cards

First, dismantle all of the old cards, leaving only the printed circuit, and maybe the processor.

You can use a soldering iron for it.

Updated: In fact, I used the pliers, it's quicker.

Step 2: Cutting and piercing

At this step we are going to pierce the circuits to permit the spiral can go in its place.

Step 3: Finish!

Now assemble the circuits and paper with the spiral, and you will get it.

What's the best way to make the holes in the circuit board? I'd assume a drill would work but is there a better way?

If you have a heavy-duty hole punch, you could try that too. If you use a drill, don't press down on the circuit board, they are brittle and you will need to eat away at it slowly and patiently.
