    Did the drive actually work after this operation? I guess it’d be cool to see it spin up and watch the r/w heads bounce around even if it didnt.

    Indeed it did! It’s been up running now continously for one week.

    Interesting post. I came across this blog by accident, but it was a good accident. I have now bookmarked your blog for future use. Best wishes. Sam

    If you like, you can head straight to and if you look very good, you can find a video of this plexiglass drive stuff working.
