Yeah I know the Altoids tin has been turned into everything but a camode at this point, but this is my first "project" that I've attempted. I was looking around on here and I saw the NES controller mod and it sparked my motivation to do this. The entire thing took about 45 minutes.
Step 1: The first thing I did was take apart the compact flash reader.
Step 2: I took the rubber feet off of the bottom of the case and glued them to the bottom of the reader's board to keep the metal contacts from touching the bottom of the tin.
Step 3: I cut one hole on the front with a dremel for the card slot, and 1 in the back for the cord.
Step 4: I attached the reader to the tin with superglue.
Step 5: I fitted a grommett in the hole just to make it look a little more
sorry for the blurry picture.
Step 6: Here's the finished project.
