Installing the pinhole into the oatmeal box camera body.
Before placing the pinhole plate inside the camera body, put electrical tape on two sides and make a circle of epoxy glue around the pinhole, without getting any glue on the hole itself.
Then carefully place the pinhole plate inside the camera so that the pinhole is in the middle of the cut-out opening. Press the pinhole plate inside the camera for a few minutes, until the epoxy glue thickens. A tight seal around the pinhole plate prevents any light from leaking into the camera. The other place where light likes to leak into the camera is around the lid.
