This is somewhat joke but...
Tämä on jokseenkin läppä mutta...

As subject says, it's a grinder made of old HDD \o/ And it actually works, I sharpened a screw with it.

Idea came after I saw a pic in funpic-site last night...... I just HAD to try it.

Ok here comes the actual log.

It was a rainy day and I had nothing to do... except reading for exams :roll:

Although most of you propably have seen a HDD, here's the one I used.

Image

It's an old Seagate. I have one just like this in my server, hopefully it won't broke up like this did.

I guess many of you have also seen the internals of a hdd, but here's them too.

Image

After a few torx-screws, the HDD was almost empty and the actual modding started.

Disks are secured with four more screws. These, like all the others in my HDD were T8-sized but they may be smaller in some cases. This one was nice to disassemble as it only had one size of screws, there were no nasty traps and the whole thing was actually held in one piece only via some tape :)

Image

Here's how disks and spacers were originally arrayed.

Image

And here's how I changed the positions

Image

This was done to support the sandpaper a bit more. All spacers in the bottom and disks on top.

Now take the topmost disk and use it as template when cutting the sand paper. Be careful with the knife, it IS sharp.... Atleast mine was. :roll:

Image

Cut done.

You can glue the paper to disk but it isn't neccessary as centrifugal force keeps it pretty flat anyway :twisted:

Now place the disk with paper on top of the cake and secure four screws. Plug powers and see how it spinns, project complete!

EDIT: Few words about using this.... thing. First of all I suggest to keep gloves on. Even there is no much of a torgue, it still has enought speed to cut your fingers open. Originally desktop-HDDs run at 7200RPM, because of the air extra friction caused by removing the housing I'd say this spins at 6-7k RPM.
