    Posted: 04 September 2004 at 12:04am
I was bored, i was sick of talking about religion so i realized i have about 50 empty 12 grams laying around. I always kind of wondered how thick the metal on one is, so i took one out to the lathe with the camera.



Its EMPTY!!! Dont try anything like this with a full cartridge!!



Its spinning in this shot, you just cant tell because my crappy camera decided blur would look cool.



A little way cut through with a parting tool



Gnarr!!!!!!!!



The end result. If your interested, its a little over 1/16" thick.

You could use a hacksaw on the lathe. Just turn it on and cut. Goes faster :)

I cut one open with a dremel before, I think they are built too strong.
