Steampunk USB Stick

I made this USB stick as a gift for my son. He has developed an appreciation for steampunk style since he went away to college.

I started off with a regular USB drive, and sealed off the end and the red part that slides with masking tape. Then I went to town, adding gears and numbers.

I added an extension to the top, so he can fasten it to his keychain. The piece at the end is an antique laundry number pin.
 I was thrilled to find that the drive still worked once the tape came off.
