Why, thank you sah for your suggestions.

I work a good deal with older people (ie. older than me ) and their computers, and I offer to destroy their hard drives for them when their machines have 'died' or have been replaced. In this instance, with the previous owner's permission, I retained the HD just because I hate throwing away something that works.

Anyway, I have several of the powerful magnets from previous dismantled drives, not to mention several dozen small grub screws. The coin idea I will mull over for a while.
