Help clean up your local hunting sites by collecting shotgun shells!
Step 1: Materials
You will need:
- Two 12 gauge used shotgun shells (This means already fired, empty. NEVER EVER cut into a live shell) If you're wondering where to get used shells look in shooting ranges or hunting grounds but make sure they are aware of your presence and there isnt a hunt going on. One needs to have a longer brass casing (about 25mil in length)
- One USB Flash Drive
- A knife
- A cork (not pictured as I didn't know I needed it)
Step 2: Cut
Step 3: Clear it out
Step 4: Cut Again
Always remember you can cut more off but not put more back on, so cut it a bit too long first.
To test if it's the right length, temporary attach the drive into the case (I used bluetack, fairly foolish and hard to clean up), and place the lid on. it should fit on snugly. Mine fitted on about 7mils.
Step 5: Cork
Being British, I used my initiative and took inspiration from =SMART='s Champagne USB key and fungus amungus' Pink Eraser USB Flash Drive. (unfortunately I forgot to document this solution). I got a cork and cut it down so it fitted tightly into the shell with no gaps. I then marked out the flash drive on the top and used a dremmel to drill / bore a hole into the cork.(see other two instructables for details)
