Secure hard drive destruction (or: Fun With Power Tools)

Usually when I dispose of a hard drive, I wipe it using DBAN - Darik's Boot And Nuke - secure enough for our purposes. But what about when the hard drive electronics or motor are damaged so that the disk can't be wiped?

Well then it's time for physical destruction:
