Get a cheap IDE (or SATA) > USB adapter, pop it out, plug it into adapter, plug into PC USB port, copy data.
he's a machinist. once he touches one or two small screws he probably can't stop until all the screws are out.

alternately, you can run knoppix off a cd. it's a linux that's meant to boot from portable drives. so boot that and see if you can use it to browse your broken drive for any data.
