What you will need
-an old hard drive (external or internal)
-a tork screw driver (T8 size, the source radio shack has them, normally in the format of multi-head screw drivers)
-your favorite superglue (I use Elmer's Ultimate High Performance Glue)
-the parts you will scavenge from the hard drive
-a drill with a 3/32 and 7/64 drill bits
-small bolt cuttermetal cutter
-a needle to apply glue if you wish
Step 1: Opening Up
Step 2: Gut It!
Step 3: Remove the Threads
Step 4: Shorten a Screw
Step 5: Glue the Screws
The results of this section will vary greatly based on your glue, I recommend the glue I used (I use Elmer's Ultimate High Performance Glue) or glue similar to it (gorilla glue). These glues are glues that kind of foam up and become very solid, not model glue that works by dissolving polymers together.
Step 6: Dry
Pry the top off but do not push down, there will be some glue making this a little hard. If you were too hasty, you will ruin your work as I did on one of my hard drives. The best way is to use 2 prying tools, I used dull knives and slowly pried near each screw a bit at a time on bot sides of it to avoid putting unnecessary pressure on a side\bending it.
Step 7: Hodling It Shut, Optional Maget
Optionally, you can add one of the magnets you pulled so that it holds the lid down. I recommend finding a wedge (recycling is the best, look around) to prop the magnet up at the proper height. Apply a generous coating of glue and let dry.
