trash or treasure

some weeks ago i found a canon pixma MP510 on the street. a "Photo All-in-One with economical single inks that prints, copies or scans in colour". someone had thrown it away regarding it as a piece of junk. i saw a pile of gold.

taking it apart i got...
* four really nice motors: two steppers and two dc motors
* a 33x25 cm piece of glass
* boxed and reusable 220v powersupply
* a small lcd colour display
* a scanner head
* some leds
* five infrared sensors (paper sensors)
* lots of screws and springs
* wire and cog belts
* some switch buttons
* two usb jacks
* various other components
