I wanted to reduce the size of my Sandisk Securemate SD-card reader so I could use it like a thumbnail drive - get rid of the bulky cables, etc. So I hacked it open and moved the circuit board into a "case" of my own making - i.e. sandwiching it between 2 pieces of perfboard, wrapping it in copper foil, and soldering the whole thing together.

The product was singularly ugly. But it still works fine, and it's roughly what I wanted, so I'm happy.

insert it into your mouse. That'll save room and make your mouse look cool! Do it!

perhaps you should try some aluminum ducting tape for a clean, smooth outer coating.
