    I stripped one down recently to get the Neodymium magnet to try and restore some magnets here...

    The mega shiny platter is above my desk and I use it to see who is standing behind me

    Teenage son loves dismantling HDDs. The magnets from a busted server drive are particularly powerful... near impossible to part!
