Telegraph Key USB Drive #7

Disassembled and ready to engrave the top copper plate.

Here are the lines engraved in the top copper plate.

The background removed, and a quick inking to see how it will look.

Added the fine shading lines, then inked; ready to assemble.

Gluing the USB drive electronics into the body.  I used seven shims I cut from 3×5 card to level everything out.  The top several shims are shorter to fit around the 16 gigabyte memory chip.

Gluing the memory card in with epoxy.

Made a little storage box for it out of walnut.

A lot of work.  The whole flash drive thing is less than 3 inches long.
