Sleeping in a basket
Take a ‘dead’ hard drive out of a computer, plenty to be found at your local rubbish tip etc.


Remove the lid and base to expose the inner workings.
Carefully remove the disc and bearing.


You should end up with a three inch, precision bearing and disc, ideal for use as a Lazy Susan for use in a variety of woodworking projects etc that require small Lazy Susan’s.

Ingenious recycling!

Should get a neodynium (?sp, rare earth anyway) magnet as well.

Great for feather boards on CI table tops, parking extraction hoses etc.

Not really a woodwork project....but it is another use for the magnets.

I scrapped a pair of old disk drives and taped the magnets to the oil filter on the landrover. In theory it should help to trap any metal fragments that might be small enough to pass through the filter. When you change the filter and pull the magnets off the bits should stay in the filter. No idea if it makes a difference - but it cost nothing to try.

Just though of another one - I used another disk drive magnet to drag a screw behind some plasterboard. Attached to the screw was a string, that attached to the alarm cable I was trying to route. The magnet was more than strong enough to get a good "grip" on the screw and drag it along reliably from the other side of the board.
