It takes 5 minutes to dismantle an old hard disk, usually. bend the disk itself & thats it done. Keep the magnets on the head arm actuator. They are fantasic for building permanent magnet alternators, donate them to the alternative energy forum, or me !

Watch out though, they are extra strong

Dont have any stats to hand, but the ones I have got from IKEA dont seem to last as long as, say Phillips ones, and have a longer warm up time. I did, however find some nice standard globe shape Large screw ones, which look good.

Only found this site yesterday. looks fun.

Live in Nottingham, have a part hand in http://www.thegreenboxshop.co.uk which is run by my wife.

If I had solely my way, I would have the whole back of the house covered in old radiators & water tanks. But there you go...
