Step 1: Supplies!
Here's the list:
Hot Glue Gun + Glue
USB Thumb Drive
Two strong magnets
Step 2: Taking apart the Thumb Drive.
Instead of grabbing the metal USB circuit board, only pull and snip away at the plastic.
You will get a very small circuit board, and the remaining plastic casing.
You can throw away the old case, since we are building a new one! :D
Step 3: Taking apart the Zippo.
Simply pull the fuel and ignition box out of the casing.
You can either save the fuel and ignition box, or throw it away.
All we need is the casing.
Step 4: Line it up!
You want it closer to the hinge so the top of the usb board does't block the casing from closing.
Step 5: Glue it up!
This will help hold the circuit board in place for the rest of the gluing.
Then, pump glue into the casing until it almost reaches the top.
Step 6: Place the Magnets!
This will keep your thumb drive closed so dust doesn't get in it.
I used a old harddrive magnet, that i broke in half.
Step 7: Finished product!
Now all you have to do is sit back, and admire!
