Step 1: The Parts

What you will need (left to right):

  • An eraser cap
  • A syringe cap (If you don't have access to one, then you can use anything similar to one, that is made from a soft, flexible plastic, and that you can dispose of...)
  • Some screwdriver heads

Step 2: The assembly

Picture of The assembly
To start, make a small hole by pushing the pointed head of the SMALL screwdriver head into the top of the syringe cap, or what ever you are using. Then use a larger screwdriver head to enlarge the hole big enough so you can fit the back of the head snugly, but not too big so it will slip. Now put the screwdriver head into the hole...

Step 3: The Assembly: Part 2

Okay... apparently, it's not like gmail where the post button automatically uploads the files. Bad user interface. Maybe it's time to hire some industrial designers.

Apparently, add images doesn't work or is censored.
I had 5 min so I fixed your pictures. Even with a webcam, you can at least shine a lamp on it... bedside reading, swing-arm, flashlight... etc. Better yet, put the items near a window... Note: The first and last image from the OP is the same.

Thanks! And yeah, I was taking pictures with my webcam, so they aren't really good pics. :P
Awesome! You could have better pictures.

Good idea!
It's a nice instructable, but I'm scratching my head to find scenarios where I don't have a screwdriver, but do have a bunch of screwdriver bits. ;)
