-But- I need your help to come up with more ideas!
We have 20 nice shiny discs, as many read/write heads complete with arm, 40 very powerful magnets, and so on. It’s actually only the imagination that sets the limits.

    Actually, I’ve been looking for a quantity of 10’s very CHEAP! What would you take?

    Nice to hear that someone is actually interested in them.
    But sorry, they’re designated to be slaughtered and made into things… That’s more fun then selling them CHEAP!

    Funny, I have a similar pile of similar sized disks.

    Chipped any xboxes lately?

    Harddrive shuffleboard!
