  1. Before you throw out your old, dead hard drives, dismantle them and recover the magnets inside.

    Some of the most powerful magnets known to man are inside.

    A couple of cute little motors too, but they don't like to come out easily.

    I agree, just don't put the magnets together with your fingers in the middle of them !

    Next all I need to do is get the destructions to build a generator with them.

    Any electrical geniuses in the forums?
