HDD Bengt.jpg

Bengt's 7200 rpm IBM Deskstar with lasercut holder for 2 x 1.5ml Eppendorf tubes and 2 x 200 ul Eppendorf PCR tubes.
Needs tape to hold tubes down and preferably a box around it to avoid getting hit by flying tubes...

Second try using laser cut acrylic parts. Now upgraded with a nice LCD display.
Ordered a appropriate driver: Electronic motor control for hopyy cars...
