Let's Get Started

To reduce the risk of injury user must read instruction manuals for all tools used in this project. Wear eye and respiratory protection. Use clamps to support work piece whenever practical.

STEP 1

Step 1

Begin by spray-mounting your desired anchor template onto your thin base-plate sheet. Print off one of your own, or freehand it! Next, with a MS51 blade secured in your Moto-Saw tool, set the Moto-Saw to high-speed and trace along the outside of your template.

STEP 2

Step 2

The Moto-Saw leaves a smooth, clean finish. However, if you notice any shaping or cleaning up that needs to be done, we recommend using your NEW Dremel 4200 tool equipped with a fine sanding accessory like the EZ413SA. The EZLock discs work well to get into tight areas like we had on our house shape! Tip: Set your 4200 to low speed for this application to ensure you don't gouge or melt your plastic material.

STEP 3

Step 3

Next, drill a pilot hole on your anchor shapes. These holes will be used to secure drywall screws through the anchors, into your walls. We wanted to cover up our screws with lego pieces, so you may want to consider placement of your pilot holes based on where you'd like to add additional lego pieces. To make the pilot holes, set a piece of scrap material underneath your anchor shape to protect your worktable. Then, mount your 150 Drill Bit into your 4200 tool, set the tool to full speed and plunge straight down into your pilot hole mark.

STEP 4

Step 4

Using the same drilling technique as you used in step 3, drill a hole through the top, center of a lego brick. Thread your key ring through the drilled hole. Tip: You may find it challenging to open the key ring wide enough for the brick. You can get another set of hands to help or use a staple opener to pry the keyring apart.

STEP 5

Step 5

Finally, sink drywall screws into your pilot holes to secure your anchor plates into place. Fit your Lego keyring onto its designated base-plate.
