In this instructable, I'll show you how to mod your boring flash drives into a fun, poker chip flash drive. Your co-workers will love it!
Step 1: Materials
3-4 poker chips, color is up to you
super glue, epoxy, JB Weld, or other plastic bonding adhesive
band saw, jig saw, hack saw or other small hand held or electric saw
Dremel or some sort of plastic file
What I used:
I got my flash drive from Wal-mart. Its a 1Gb Lexar, 3 for $15
My poker chips were from a cheap set, unweighted plastic. If you have an expensive set, they are likely weighted with a metal disc in the middle and will not work. You can get cheap ones at dollar stores.
I used JB Weld, an all purpose two-part adhesive.
A small table mounted jig saw works best, and maybe a Dremel.
Step 2: Trace Flash Drive
After you have it traced on the poker chip, use the saw of your choice to cut out the pattern. The more snug the cut, the better the flash drive will stay in.
Step 3: Layer Chips and Check Fit
Step 4: Assembly
*Careful with the adhesive, applying to much to conducting parts may short circuit the drive*
Pop it into your computer, at the office or at home, and let the digital storage begin!
