neat trick. Makes for a nice summer project while school is out. Now I got to get my boys on it and make a million!

he failed to point out that he made that out of a solid silver quarter. notice the lack of two-tone on the edge of the quarter? those are hard to find these days, and a regular quarter would look like if you followed that process

You must be nuts to spend 50 cents on a project like this... It was hard enough for me to part with a quarter =)

oooh

Hey Akomgwtfbbq,

I used a big bolt at first but once I got started I found it was easier just to use a table-vice. I'd still use the hammer at first, but once you got started if you have a vice, I'd say it's worth a try, just pinch slow

I'd go further but I don't have a stupid drill up here at work (at least one that is easy to get ahold of) so I'll have to wait till I go home to go further
