I am become death

...the hard drive destroyer

Our new toy tool arrived today. Nestled in a big shipping carton festooned with "Caution: heavy parcel" tape, our Bow Industries MHDD-1 Manual Hard Disk Destroyer showed up early this morning.

This machine is awesome. BOW wasn't kidding about it weighing 97lbs. After muscling it onto a workbench, I gave it a spin...

An obsolete 4.3GB SCSI drive


The drive is loaded in the destroyer


...A few turns of the handle


Done!


Not going to run again


...Ever!

I spent a good bit of time today smashing old hard drives and showing it off to anybody who happened by. :-)

Too bad they don't have a person-sized Destroyer. ;)
