I bought some drain snake at the dollar store
I then cut it into 8 pieces about 5.5"
I then sanded off the top layer using 180 grit sand paper so I would have a shine surface
I then used a sharpie to trace some picks and templates on to all 8 pieces of drain snake
I then began grinding off the excess metal
Quenching often in ice water
I finished the fine tuning with my dremel tool
I sanded the picks by hand. This tool three hours
Here is the end result
Sorry for the bad photography.
Ask any questions you would like.
