This is a 2.5" HDD clock I made from a dead external hard drive. I used a 2.5" drive instead of a 3.5" drive as in the UK it is very hard to find clock movements that have a long enough spindle to go all the way through.
This is my first instructable and I am 14, so any constructive criticism or comments are encouraged. I am entering the battery powered contest, so be sure to vote for me!
