When you re taking your gadgets apart, a magnetic tray for all your screws could come in handy.

Fortunately, you can make one by taking more gadgets apart.

As the video above from Linus Tech Tips points out, platter-style hard drives as opposed to SSDs have hefty neodymium magnets in them.

If your old hard drive died and you don t need it anymore, you can take it apart and use the magnets to create a handy tray to hold all your screws so they don t get lost.

Once you re done dismantling the hard drive, you can also sell the remaining parts on BoardSort.com if you want tomake a tiny pit of extra cash with the leftover pile of junk you now have.

Build a magnetic parts tray out of an old, dead hard drive!
