    Hard Drive Magnets

    I take computer hard drives apart and use the magnets for various purposes. I often leave the backer plate on as it allows me to mount it to wood with a screw.

    Very cool solution. I also use magnets for different purposes, but I have always bought them. I like your solution, I have a few old disks and broken speakers that I could use.
