To build a stir plate one must first master the art of the search.

I'd buy one from Yuri if he's up for building another batch.

mcguyver style...

You'll need an old dead hard drive, a computer fan, a 5V DC wall wort, a piece of plexiglass/plastic, a piece of antislide stuff (for like cabinets). Now all you need to know is that there are very powerful rare earth magnets inside hard drives.

Ya I found that thread after I had already posted this thread. After looking at that thread I think it might just be easier for me to buy one. Yuri would be the guy to ask you say.

A quick aside.......

How long do you leave it on for a starter? 24 hours a day?
