I would give it a 9, very informative. One thing though, instead of using a razor blade, I took a more harsh approach with an old pI. I tapped it into a hunk of wood with a hammer and then violently shifted it one direction to rip most of the pins off at once. Just an idea :P Pliers also work, needlenose of course.

Now what I don't get, is why you'd remove those pins? To me, they are the most beautiful thing ever created by man.

And why make a keychain? Make a necklace and give it your your wife/girlfriend.
It's gold and shiney, they like stuff like that.

Pins hurt in pocket/neck etc
