Home-made hard drive clock

A unique way to put those old hard drives to use!

A good friend made this for me as a gift. It’s an old set of hard drive platters which he cleverly mounted a clock mechanism into. The mechanism extends through the hole that is already present in the spindle, which makes this pretty much a “no tool” project. Applying adhesive numbers to the front gives it a typical clock layout.

This is a really neat idea and shows what you can do with “old junk” you have laying around and a little bit of creativity!
