precise and plastic do not go in same sentence.
best you can get with plastic moulds is 1/10 of a mm.
For tool to be good you need 100 times more precise tehnology.
Problems accure if messurments are in +/- 2/100 of a mm.
Imposibile to do it in plastic and to be good enogh.

Manufacturers make shipping combs from plastic, that's a fact, so I guess it's precise enough.
Did you check the link I posted?

for us it was not precise enough. We are not assembling it we need to disassemble it first.
Moulds it self cost a loooot to be made and ones we tried did not gave results we needed.

Yes I found that out back in the day when I was enquiring about getting Spindle Clamps made up for the CD Drives of the Playstation. I was getting a couple a week to fix and the spares were expensive. But as I was in the stages of locating designers and mould makers, some aspiring online seller beat me to it. I was gonna make meeeelyons!

Something to unstick the heads of a ramped wd passport that has been dropped.

I cannot for the life of me find a way to get them back onto the ramp when they are knocked off without damaging them.

Also, paypal would be great. I know I have mentioned this to you, but I would be more than happy to pay the extra 2.9%

We have done research and development process for Unstick tool for WD 2.5'' drives some time ago.
And we have made functional prototype. However there is one big problem which we haven't succeeded to overcome so far.

As I have said, tool is functional, as it unsticks heads from the platters, however it's first (or last) snout (which is for head 0) is to too thin to be safe for constant use. It is thin because of the salience in WD 2.5'' casing (see picture below, I have marked this salience with red elipse). Because of this tenuity of one snout of the tool, we still consider this tool unsafe for use. We are thinking about solution for this problem over a year, and there were many ideas - from different material, special construction of last snout or some shape changes of the tool itself, however problem is still not solved.

There is another problem with space which is available for tool extraction after heads are safely moved from the platters to the ramp. Space is limited because of another salience in the casing (see picture bellow I have marked it with yellow elipse). However, this problem most likely can be solved with different design of the tool.

So Western Digital made us some problems with its casing design and that is something on which we can't influence however we can try to solve the issue.
And we still love our job. :)

Bellow are pictures of WD 2.5'' unstick prototype.

About PayPal, it was introduced in Serbia some time ago however we still can use it for paying only, not for receiving payments.
Our government announced that receiving payment via PayPal will be available soon, so we can only wait and try to believe the politicians. :)

Hahhaha I think that politicians are the same everywhere, not only in our region. :D

I think it's WD2500BEVT-00ZCT0. Not sure, because the lid is lost somewhere. :)
