Step 1: Gather Materials

I used gears from an old mechanical watch a copper pipe,hot glue,a bright led, and quick glue .

Step 2: Cut Cupper Pipe

Cut the copper pipe to the lenght of the usb stick.

Step 3: Make the Body

After you cut the copper pipe now we can make the body,and the front and bottom piece.

Step 4: The Front Cover

The thing is the same like the body, just measure the usb lenght and cut, and solder . Just like the body.

Step 5: Final Step BE Creative

After everything is ready and all are glued and set in place to be oxidized copper in the following way: a quarter cup of vinegar and two tablespoons of coarse salt, and applied with a soft brush or a toothbrush but not very much to result in an ugly black :))

PS. Sorry for my bad english i used google translate.
