I have decided that in the past I have over engineered most of the projects I get into. This time was different. I only wanted mimimal construction. What i did was purchase a cheap 3.5" hard drive enclosure with power supply and a variable speed fan with controler from newegg.com. Now all that was left is basic assembly. The hard drive case was aluminum and needed a hole cut in it to allow maximum magnetics. I mounted the speed control control into the front panel. glued an old hard drive magnet onto the fan after finding the magnetic center. Photos are below......

Looks nice...seems functional :mug:
First time I have seen a single magnet setup for this application...just wondering if the stir bar throws in use?
If I ever get around to doing a stirplate I will probably go for the starburst stir bar


Curious about your part list/links?

It has thrown the bar but only at MAX RPM. It has to pull the vortex to the bottom and cavitate for a while before it throws the bar.....
