  • Rare Earth Magnets From Old Hard Drives

    As a techie nut and now pc engineer (former kid with a toolkit who destroyed things that still worked) i can tell you that a lot of the motors from the SATA GB HDD's are molded into the casings and so are pretty useless unless you use the casings as well for a shieldOlder drives (IDE) had removable motors that you could do something withThe magnets and platters were also thicker and stronger than today's versions and yes i have cut, trapped, almost broken fingers on magnets from HDD's. I've never had the priviledge of salvaging a server unfortunatelyThe screws under stickers are used as a 'warranty seal' as all manufacturers who offer warranty on drives will always say any damage to sticker etc will void warranty
