« 5-Minute Project Video: The Coffee Can Cellphone Antenna | Main | Fixed; Right Out of the Box »



I have had fun with hard drives since I was a kid. Always collected the magnets to see how much they could pick up from a distance. I will add one thing that was not mentioned in the video. These magnets are not wimpy, they are strong and you could easily get pinched if you get your figures caught between two magnets or the magnet and the metal.


the platters themselves are kinda cool too

they be shiny

the disks have a bit of a yellow tint to them though

shiny things are good for mobiles and distracting people

Cheap Computer Canada

The fridge doors are not so durable nowadays as they font close shut properly . ... so in away its good that another helpful magnet is on the way.
