Technically, not a purchase. The landlord volunteers for community recycle day. He salvaged a couple things for me -- a Canon inkjet / scanner combo, and an old Agfa scanner.
The Canon, being mostly plastic, I just took apart. 3 motors and some drivetrain stuff, a power suppy, and if I get bored, I might salvage some discrete parts from the boards. Oh, and I haven't taken the control panel apart yet, but might be a usable LCD in there.
I didn't take the Agfa apart, because once I removed the case covers, I thought that a couple of good linear motion assemblies might be useful just like they are. Don't know what I might do with them -- maybe trade to a roboticist for something. I got a chuckle out of the control board on the Agfa lid unit. Compared to the Canon (all SMD stuff) it looks positively retro!
But liudr, it doesn't look like it needs table space - looks s X D enough to hang up on the wall over your desk
Gotta love that auto-smiley insertion. What if you really did want 'Bee close paren'? And it can make typos amusing too!
