1 × Inkjet Fax Machine An inkjet-based fax machine I pulled off the scrap pile (not sure what model). I have no use for a fax machine, and it was likely broken anyways, so I took it to bits and salvaged the carriage.
1 × Epson Perfection 2580 Photo A flatbed scanner I got as a donation. I already have another scanner, so I decided to repurpose it for 3D printing. I'm using the scan head and frame for this project, and holding onto the other bits for something else. Not sure what yet.
1 × Broken HP Laser Printer A broken office-sized HP laser printer that yielded up a whole bunch of stepper motors and smooth rods (and took about 4 hours to dismantle).
3 × M6 Nut 3x $0.20 = $0.60
6 × M4 Nut 6x $0.15 = $0.90
2 × M4 x 40mm Bolt 2x $0.40 = $0.80
1 × Broken IBM Wheelwriter A busted IBM Wheelwriter 3 Series II electronic typewriter I found on the scrap pile. Having no hope of repairing it, I figured I'd repurpose it and use the carriage for this project.
