    Love all these ideas. I collect lots of different shells from the shooting range and I will definitely be making the magnets.


    Question 4 years ago on Step 3

    the circle cigar part stays inside the bullet and can not be taken out easily... The punches have some feature for that.

    I will not do that. I guess you are also not smoking but thanks.
