Western Digital platter swap with Dymo labels????

Western Digital WD5000BMVW with a nasty stiff spindle, rare but does happen. 

Best way to do these for me is to use dymo labels , seems like a strange thing to use but they actually work perfectly. Enough stickiness and minimal residue. 

These are in no particular order but you get the idea... The platters need lifted while keeping alignment and transferred to a donor drive along with heads magnet etc. The data can then be recovered. More data recovery jobs can be seen here
