won't the magnets mess with the receiver?

I've got hundreds of old hard drives, we take them out before we recycle the old computers and physically destroy them, hence my huge collection of magnets ;)

Indeed that would be a good idea, now if I just had some place to get hardrives. But I will most likley stick to the velcro idea (no pun intended, hehe).
Another quick question....What should I use as a filler for holes and cracks in fibreglass? I was thinking Bondo, but I'm not quite sure on what exactly to use. It would also be great if it could be used on filling the wood also, Thanks!

If you can find an old hard drive, take it appart, there are some super powerful magnets in some older hard drives, I've got ones that can break skin or shatter each other if put to close together, there cheap, as you can usually get an old drive from a 386, 486 or newer near free. And there small.

Magnets would work, but to find strong enough ones would not only be expensive, but really hard where I live. Im sure they would work fine, but theres the eproblem of the lid shifting, but Im sure that can be avoided by adding inner rails to keep it centered.
But about the adhesive not holding, I planned on using staples to support the bond to the wood. Thanks everyone for your comments!
