Now that IS interesting Shane.  It would be very stable and fast (at least 3600 rpm, up to 7600 rpm depending n the drive).  Great for small work like you're showing in the diagram.   Should work great.   I have a couple of old drives sitting around.  That would be fantastic for doing some extra-fine "bench grind" work.

Question:  how do you power it?

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.

Hmmmm 5v huh?  Just right for a 5v mini-amp board. : )

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

bwahahahaa

Silly, you back up your files before doing this!

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...

Old build. New saddle. (maybe temporary, but it sure works well)
