Geek Tool Hack

May 7, 2010 by

I love technology and I’m a bit of a car guy too.  I love to get my hands dirty with both, so here’s a cool tip for all your gear heads if you have some old hard drives laying around.

Inside the hard drives are Neodymium magnets that are super strong and are great for hacking into tool holders.

I added a magnet to my engine hoist to hold the lever used to raise and lower the hoist.

The original holder required you to put the pipe through a tube and was a hassle.  Now its so quick and easy to grab and put back.

You can see the original post of this on my project car blog.

Here is something i would have never thought would work, but hey i don’t know that much about sim cards except to say that whenever i put one into my iphone it drops calls.  Get it?  That was a joke about how bad AT&T’s network is.   But i digress…

Well this guy knew more about how sim cards work and made this awesome Sim to MicroSim card hack or slice rather.

Apparently you can just cut it to fit and it works.  Who knew?

Read how he did and see the cut by cut details. Its awesome.
