Very soon i will be doing a review of ER-Tools Versus These Metal Tools ,Stay Tuned :D

Very good, can't wait.
I just used the metal tool (SEA 11/ES.2/LP 4) about 3 hours ago on an emergency job. Heads stuck to platter after the server was powered down. Recovery is still running but looks good with just 2 of 8 heads having an occasional slowdown.


Blizzard ,
You used HDDSURGERY Tools ....

Yes, but I only have their Seagate ramp tools. I have ER-Tools, HDD-Surgery, HDDHeadTools.com (DFL) level 1&2, and now Ace Tool Lab.
I also have heat shrink tubing, straws, and toothpicks :)

Yeah, I tried that early on when I was first experimenting with head swapping drives. Never worked for me.

Projector slides and rubber bands works much better. :lol:

I'm still trying to figure out how I might use dental floss in the process somehow. That way I'll have finally become Macgyver. :D

I have to disagree :P For $205 you get ramp set for 5 brands of HDD and it includes 10 head WD. They aren't the best quality but it's a good place to start. As far as I'm concerned your assortment can never be too big.

1mm is the only size I have used and it was for an old 3.5". If you can find .5mm or smaller I will certainly try them. The straw I used was not actually a "straw" it was the tube from a can of silicone spray. It was much thinner than the tubes you usually see on cans of air or WD40.
As for toothpicks, I keep them handy but I got the idea from Sam

Well,
Well He Was Selling For 260 USD ,As Many others started to sell cheaper then him he might be loosing sales hence forcing himself to reduce rates .No one is talking about how good or bad the tool is here but what i am saying that other then buying DFL tools from them they are not cheaper in anything else they sell .When they were selling this for 260 i could buy this in shenzen from my regular supplier for USD 100 ~ 125 .I hope you get the point .

No, I just found that there were better materials to use that stayed put better than the pill foil does. I stopped messing around with trying it when I discovered better ways. I guess some guys would rather master the art of finger painting, rather than learn to use a brush.
