Steel Phone Hard Case

Covers are different. Plastic and metal, cloth and leather, light and heavy, all of them are designed to protect the gadget from dust, moisture and scratches. But it is not necessary to buy this useful product in the store! It is much more pleasant to wear the phone in its own case. And the money, any, with saved. I propose to make a cover of galvanized steel one millimeter thick.

This case is not designed to be permanently worn. It is good for people whose work is associated with physical labor, or lovers of extreme hiking, it does not carry any aesthetic functions and serves only to protect against a rough mechanical effect on a fragile gadget. To make a hard steel case you need:
  • a piece of galvanized steel.
  • a grinder.
  • ruler and marker.
  • emery paper.
  • soldering iron with tin and flux for soldering.
  • adhesive tape.
  • paper.
  • transparent propylene (forscreen).
  • drill.
  • thin sponge.
  • leather (or skin).

Making a metal case for a cellular

First we take all measurements from the phone: length, width, thickness, location from the edges of the camera, speakers, flash and keys. We transfer all parameters to paper.

With a grinder we cut out the wall of the future case according to the pattern - front, back, and long strip for the end walls. It is not necessary to output everything up to a millimeter with a grinder - it is long, difficult and tedious. Cut about the contours, and then bring to the ideal file. In the field of the camera, the dynamics and other drill holes, and in the same way, the file or nadfile we bring to the necessary parameters.

Now you need to remove the galvanized layer from the steel from the front sides of all the blanks.Again, using a sander and sandpaper of large grain, remove a layer of zinc. After removing the zinc layer, change the emery wheel to a circle of finer grain and grind the workpiece. Do not forget about the end strip! Personally, I was too lazy to make holes in it for the volume and power keys, but just downloaded the necessary widgets and brought them to the display of the phone. But this is an individual matter and everyone can make these keys for their own convenience. Further, using a soldering iron, flux and tin, we solder the end strip and the back wall of the case.

Due to the small thickness of the metal, it will not cause difficulties. Now we glue the double sided tape on the inside over the entire area of ​​the workpiece. Apply a thin, two-millimeter sponge so that it sticks to the entire surface.

Now we'll deal with the front side.To fasten the front plate with the screen to the ends and the back side, we solder the corners of the same metal to it. So that they were right next to the end walls inside the case.

And here it is not so simple - at first I polished the metal to mirror blue, but it turned out to be superfluous (at least for me), since it any, even the slightest typos, fat from the skin of the fingers and other blots are noticeable.I had to work with hands and sandpaper with zero grain. So I made the metal matte. Well, in general, that's all. The cover is ready. The weight of the phone along with such a case does not have significant changes, due to the small thickness of the metal.
