Videocard Cooking Aid

Well I always wanted to do an instructable with magnets but I never had any ideas until now. I had to raid 3 hard drives for the magnets for this project and I think it turned out fine. This magnet is used for holding up books on the fridge for cooking.

Step 1: Get the Materials

3 Hard drives worth of magnets
Gorilla Glue
Obsolete video card

Step 2: Glue First Magnet

Put a small bead of glue on the magnet, then put it on the back of the cars and finally clamp it for 3-4 hours.

Step 3: Glue Second Magnet

Well its the same process as before but don't let sticky magnets go together.

Step 4: Glue Final Magnet

Same steps as before

Step 5: Final Thoughts

As you can see from the previous picture i had to grind some tabs off the middle magnet so to save time use flat magnets only.

    You shouldn't have used a rage 3d pro! In the words of Indiana Jones: "That belongs in a museum!"

    OK, you don't like the video card and the network card, use a sound card instead, or a motherboard !! icanryme2002 found it fun to use a videocard and hdd magnet. it's a bit nonsense, it's for for fun !! I'm olivierdemontpellier and i approve this Instructable !

    Apparently you didn't read the box below the the test box where you typed your comment. To remind you, it says:

    You should say that you need two hard drives worth of magnets then, because you used 3, and two drives will give you 4 magnets.


    Take apart more, different manufactures hard drives and you will find that some designs only use one magnet. Thus, icanryme2002 must have been getting his magnets from one magnet designs.


    So that if someone is trying to do this, they don't get halfway through and realize they destroyed an extra hard drive.

    With a small, thin screwdriver and a small hammer all it takes is a light tap to break the glue bond and seperate the magnet from the piece of metal its mounted to. Vola', no worries about any bumps bends or otherwise.
