I would think any machine shop / welding shop could help... cut through
the drive with an acetylene / oxygen blowtorch, and I'm reasonably sure
the data is "destroyed" enough for most scenarios. Unless you're
worried about the NSA or MI6... but if you were playing in that space,
I doubt you'd be asking this question here.
Something like a 500 ton hydraulic press could probably do quite a number
on a drive as well, but I'd go with the blowtorch myself... <shrug>
