get yourself some magnets

Continuing the last post. In order to grab those powerful nib magnets you'll need a six point star screwdriver set to dismantle the hdd case. They are similar to the allan headed screws (unbrako) yet in the shape of a star instead. This torx screwdriver sets are found at chinese stores for a small price.

Torx head screws have a six point star pattern, and they are accordingly also called star screws. The technical specification is ISO 10664. These screws are used in the automotive industry, in computers and hard drives and consumer electronics goods.
