For this project you will need: Screw driver, tape dispenser, electrical tape, razor blade, Dremmel ® w/ rotating cutting tip, hot glue gun, and a small screw (a little bigger than your screw driver's bit.)
Step 2: Razor Blade
First take apart the razor blade.
Measure than snap off correct size.
The razor should measure the same width as the dispenser.
*Caution razor blades are sharp*
Step 3: Cutting the Slot for the Razor
I've highlighted the spot you need to deepen with your Drimmel ®. This will be where the razor will go.
* Don't cut all the way through, leave just enough room for the razor. *
Step 4: Test the Slot
Step 5: Hot Glue in the Razor
Hot glue the razor into the dispenser.
Then put a a bead of hot glue on both sides for extra reinforcement.
Step 6: Final Step
Once you have glued the razor in the dispenser then put in the electrical tape. If the tape its to loose and falls out you can drill a whole in the part listed bellow
Step 7: Place in Screw
Drill hole and place in screw. The screw will keep the electrical tape from falling out, while still letting the tape spin freely.
Step 8: Finished!!!
Now you can easily tear off the right about of electrical tape you need!
