The S.F.P.B.C. is a combination multi tool I made from an old file. Its flat head screwdriver, file sides, pry bar, blade and can opener make it a great E.D.C. item.
Step 1: Materials and Tools
-1 old used file
-Dremel (with cut off wheel)
-Clamps or a vise
Step 2: Design
Sketch your design before you dive into it. Make sure all of your key elements fit and work together as well as possible. Its and E.D.C. carry piece so add and take whatever tools that will make your life simpler.
Step 3: Shape Refine ...and Refine Again
As you shape the big pieces off do it a little at a time don't jump ahead of yourself. I started with the flat blade portion and worked my way around easing into the file with my bench grinder. I shaped the screw driver end then moved on to the tip of the blade.
Once your rough shape is done refine the sharp burs with your file. The cutting surface of the blade should be flat and come to an even point down the length if the blade.
The can opener was a bit tricky. Using the grinder I took out a large chuck the steel. After that I proceeded to use the Dremel to cut the notch that lips the cap of the bottle. With a little patients you can too.
Step 4: Ahhhh Sweet Satisfaction
Once you have shaped every angle and filed all the edges use it! Open a Coke or in my case a Corona Lol.
Please use caution when working and apply all safety rule but most importantly have fun and build something cool.
