Step 1: Tools and Materieals
A folding utility knife with new blade
High speed rotary tool
Fiberglas cut off disk for ruff shaping your plastic
Medium barrel sanding drum with medium grit
big bulky soldering iron. (really get the (9.99 kit from makers shed if you need one. It's ideal for this and other small projects.) I used my wife's that she uses for jewelry making. The tip is about worn out and is a really cheap one to boot.)
Electrical solder (has flux in the core.) I used .050 dia solder. 60% tin 40% lead.
fine Rat tail file
course, medium and fine sanding paper. I glue all mine to a fingernail file. Or make your own.
Small wire (I used some wire out of a cat cable)
switch (autozone) (but I got mine out of one of my parts bins. No idea where or what it came from)
UV LED (2 for 1.99 at radio shack)
100 Ohm resistor (5 for 1.19 at radio shack)
9 volt battery clip (5 for 2.99 at radio shack)
9 volt battery (.99 from radio shack. Mine was on sale but you can get them at dollar stores for a buck too)
a stip of 6mm foam
silver or chrome paint (TEST IT OUT FIRST)
Old Broken Mag light. One of those 2 dubble A jobs. Off brand works too. This is kinda optional as well but I like it.
