DIY Orbitkey + KeyShark + pill fob.
Nice work! What kind of a bolt did you use to fasten the keys?
I'm guessing you cut through a row of holes along one edge of the leather strap. I like the effect, though. If you were to use some polish of even a Sharpie marker to dark the exposed raw leather, it may look even better.
It's a Chicago screw. It's also known as a sex bolt, post and screw, interscrew, and a few other names, too. You can get them in different lengths and there are also extensions. Not all hardware stores carry them, so you may want to search online or call ahead to avoid wasting time.
The holes aren't intentional: I cut the leather from an old belt. If you want to make one, cut a strip that's 3/4" wide and 5 1/2" - 6" long, depending on the length of your longest key or keychain tool. You may also need a few rubber spacers to make sure everything fits snugly.
A few keys have holes too small to fit on Chicago screws. If you have a key like this, you can use a drill to widen the hole. Or you can swap out the Chicago screw for a screw and a nut, which should have a thinner, more forgiving diameter.
You have got so many tools there! Who made the ruler, if may I ask?
Thank you for your reply
You made that?! Great work Bobcat san.
Did you make that?
That's really funny and clever!
I wish!!! It's a Steel Flame.
Few of my favorite pieces.
I have no pictures to share, yet, but I picked up some roller chain master links yesterday in size 40 and 41. After looking at many different hardware stores, I finally found them at Tractor Supply Company. Not only did they have a good selection, but they were very reasonably priced! I got a four-pack of each size for less than I could buy a single link from most on-link retailers. Perhaps the best part was I could look at them and get a feel for how large they actually are prior to purchase.
I use a Keyport, but routinely carry about 10 keys. I'm going to try to set up the four extras on a master link with an MM or SF clip.
That should make an interesting pic.
