It's a long story.

I enjoy fun spy shows with the gizmos and gadgets so when I saw this I had to have one. Here's how it turned out:


Opened. I used self-mixing clear epoxy resin to fill it and hold the functional part then painted the top with red nail polish. It was my first time working with that epoxy stuff. Well, my first try with this project I used something similar but the results...it's best not to speak of it.


Closed. The metal part stuck up too much so the lid doesn't fit like it did. I put thin line of clear nail polish several layers thick around the rim to help the cap stay put. It works!  Cool


In use. The light flashes red!

I'm so glad I tried this out. It was kind of a learning curve but now I know not to be too afraid. It's a start!

You don't need a permit for a glue gun.
