Default Making key rings from old processors?

I got a i386 and a i486 and I wanna make a keyring out of them.
I gave them to my dad to drill but he said a ceramic/metal drill wont drill through. He said he might need a diamond drill. Anyone done this and what did yous use?

I made a keyring out of an old 486DX33. I knew i wouldn't be able to drill through it so i never tried. I just ripped all the pins off and made a small U shaped thing out of a bit of coat hanger *i think* and soldered it to where the pins used to be. Worked a charm.

Strange1 actually has thread on old CPU's. Yous should post replies in his thread located here.

http://forums.overclockers.com.au/sh...&highlight=cpu

Anyway thats a nice P3 keychain. May I ask what happened to the processor? Also my dad said he might try an engraver on the thing hmm guess I'll have to wait and see if it works. Or I could try soldering, thanks for that idea Crash Dummy.
