    Guess I have to make a new Kennedy fob, right after a Cuban 3 Pesos Ché fob.
    Or maybe on one side Kennedy, on the other one the Ché?
    Would match well if I had one from 1964 as they weren't made one year earlier to fit with the Cuba Crisis.

    I like the Rupee a lot, it's a really beautiful piece imo, but I think I'll put something else on my work badge, just not sure when.

    Very Nice! I looked on his website and want to order but i do not see any specs. How long is the clip? I need it to be about 3" for it to tuck into my back pocket

    Is there a write up on how you make those? Those look great. And I have some old silver morgan dollars from the 1800's that would make great fobs..

    Hello @towguy

    There's a thread right on this forum
    And a link + link + link to my blog

    Thanks for your interest and keep me informed about your results and maybe show the pieces you want to use :)

    P.S. I have four Trade Dollars, two Yens from Japan, one from Mexico and one from the US.
    The are worn a lot, not so goot to make a stamp from it but I tried it once, no picture of it I'm affraid.
    It's not just simple Silver Trade Dollars, no, they are magnetic silver!
    Well, got them cheap, so it's no problem ;)

    Maybe someday I'll order something like this, it's amazing what stuff besides the usual counterfeit products you can get from China.

    So years ago, I got really fed up of my key arrangement. After some looking and experimenting, I found I quite liked my keys as a block (within a U shaped bracket).

    I tried a few, and settled on the Keyport pivot. I broke my pivot after a few weeks of heavy use, and keyport being super nice gave me a replacement. In the mean time while waiting the replacement to arrive, I fixed and bodged my pivot back together.

    I keep my keys in my back pocket, and am always sat on them or using them so they do get a bit of a rough treatment. They get abused quite hard in the workshop at work.

    I never swapped over to the new key port, but now we are all in isolation, it gave me an excuse to have a play around in the shed. Using the same idea and form factor from my pivot bodge, I made a new reinforced version which should now be fabregas485 proof.

    3mm stainless bar, heated and beaten with a ball pein hammer to give it a nice hammered effect, with some stainless hardware.

    Nice setup.
    I'd use flat head screws embeded in the plates

    I was thinking of using chicago bolts, but ultimately I have gone for robustness over appearance. Might machine up some stainless steel domed bolts.
