The computer power supply probably. Which BTW can make a nice power supply for projects or other items. They put out 10volts on one side and 5volts on the other with 2 ground leads in the middle.

That's right and a steady 10volt would be fine for all those 9volt amps and pedals.

The power plug is 12V and 5V...

Your right sir. I was mistaken.

Bit like putting a doggy door on a submarine,no torque,and the sawdust  and metal filings will be bound to corrupt your data, and mess with files eventually

Wouldn't you be sharpening your files? ;-E
That is fantastic!
Great use of technology in the workshop :)
Just make sure you use an older hard disk... The newer and laptop ones use a silicon disc (glass)where the older ones are aluminum, like in the picture...

Upscale it with an old record player, it might be slow but changing sandpaper grit would easy peasy and there's 12" of it.
You could even attach stuff to the arm for stability and even edges.

At last, something useful can come from Barry Manillo LP's

I'm going to put a belt sander belt on my truck tire... jack up the back, put her in drive... use a brick on the gas pedal... What could go wrong?

Now there's hack I may have to try. I have a few spare drives hanging around and I could use a sharpener for my small tools.

Aluminum plate will score and develop valleys while glass will remain level. This probably will not take a great deal of pressure, but this is really more of a finishing/honing/polishing devise instead of a heavy grinder. Speed is more important than pressure in this type of sharpening, but too much speed can cause enough heat to develop to ruin the temper of the tool. Don't EVER let the tool edge turn color unless you know how to retemper!
