Step 1: Gather Your Tools
Tools used in this project were:
CD-ROM housing from broken laptop
Straight thru ethernet adapter
DB9/RJ45 console adapter
All purpose glue and spray adhesive
Magical screw bucket
Box 'o Death
Can do attitude
Step 2: Select and Build Your Housing
The first step to this project for me was selecting and creating my housing. I selected a pack of cigarettes to showcase my project, not because i am a smoker, but because i felt it was much more deadly and manly than the box of raisins I was considering as an alternate. Although I think it would be humorous to open up a technician's toolbox to find a lonely box of raisins, I felt a pack of cigarettes was much more common and inconspicuous. Also because it is indeed pocket sized. Even though the box says "crush proof" I decided to reinforce it a little better with a metal housing.
Step 3: Secure Your Tools
Now that your housing has taken shape you can start to bolt down your various adapters and tools. You can pick any tools you find useful and that can be easily lost or broken. I picked a console adapter, straight thru and x-over adapters, bluetooth dongle, and flash drive.
Step 4: Hide Your Bad Cutting and Drilling
I do not in any way condone smoking. Simply read the side of the box. You will die from it.
Step 5: Create a Safe Space for the Rest of Your Tools
To better secure the remaining pieces of my multi-tool I decided to add a little foam.
Step 6: Enjoy Your Fruits
Here's some pictures of the Toolkit 'o Death in action. I would love some feedback. Although I have been a fan of the site for some time, this is my very first 'structable! Thanks for looking!
