Step 1: Supplies
- USB stick
- Cassette tape
- Glue (Hot or Super)
Step 2: Minor Steps
Remove the five screws which hold the cassette together, and remove the spools of film. Score, with a knife the outline your USB stick on the inside of one of the sides. This is where you will be adding "runners" for the stick to slide along. On the outside of both sides of the case, score where the tip of the USB stick will protrude from. Roughly cut a hole, and file it smooth.
Step 3: Adding Runners to the Inside
Grab your toothpicks, and place them along the score lines. Hot/Super glue them into place and test how the USB stick fits along them.
Step 4: Making a Little Window!
Grab the other half of your cassette, and measure out a little window to cut from it for your USB stick to slide in and out. Use your Dremel, or rotary tool, to cut it out, and use a file to make the edges appealingly smooth. :D
Step 5: Let It Slide!
With the piece you cut from the case, you can make a thumb stud for the stick to slide easily in and out of the case!
There isn't really much to this instructable, as its basically a simple process. But it is fun, useable, and hip!
