We here at DCI would like you to know that this is maybe considered satire so don't try most of this at home you could really get injured or ruin your Ipod. With that out of the way feel free to try this I'm not your damn mother.
It's happened to all of us. After building so many projects for your Ipod out of Altoids tins and you're left with nowhere to put all those minty little devils. Thankfully here at David and Chuk Industries we have solved this dilemma. With a few basic tools, a small handful of parts, and 7 to 13 hours of your time you too can have a wonderful new Ipod Altoids Case, or as we call it the original DCIpod.
Step 1: Assemble the parts
You are going to need:
We suggest using only the larger Ipods (generation 1-4). Do not attempt to use a Zune for this you could be badly injured.
2 Hard drives
You are going to get your magnets out of these and you should only use new or lightly used hard drives so that the magnets will be "the freshest." If you are removing these from your mother or grandmother's computer please back up their Quickbooks for god sakes.
We got these from a hardware store. We made sure to get brass ones so we could list this Instructable as "Steampunk."
1 Tin of Altoids
You could use the giant pile of them you have laying around your bedroom from previous projects. We had to buy ours because we unfortunately don't use Altoid tins for projects because we live in a town with an electronics store that sells project boxes. We chose Wintermint because it's obviously the classiest flavor.
1 Large Piece of Steel Wool
We will explain later.
