    Your #8 photo, I've found a couple of those but not more than three over the years. I think one intact with a ceramic cpu but all are long gone by now. 73, Mike

    Now go beat the copper out of something, Miked

    We're probably about even now. We do a lot of trading. A few months ago I gave him a server and a battery backup.

    Pic 2 is 4.25 lbs of hard drive boards

    Pic 4 is 3 small socket mother boards
    Pic 5 is 1 large socket mother board
    Pic 6 is 4.75 lbs of gold finger boards
    Pic 7 is a hand full of processors
    Pic 8 I've never found one of these but it looks like a slot processor with a large socket minus the ceramic processor.
    Pic. 8 is what they call a Slocket. I have a post up on my business Facebook page with 2 of them. I know they made one for a Pentium Pro.

    I've only ever found 1 Slocket during my e-waste career. What a neat find when you pull away the plastic housing!
    I'm so into scrapping.. When my Steel Toe Boots Wear out, I cut the Steel out of them and recycle the Toe!

    Lanier/Toshiba KSU 6 Electronic Key Telephone System

    This brings back memories from about 1984. These systems were the first kind I ever installed. They had gold finger boards but like most systems from that time they had some large bulky components. The transformers will be removed for better pricing.





    I thought the power supply below would have a power board inside but it didn't. There was just 1 transformer and three caps inside.




    Central processing unit




    2 digital station cards




    2 analog trunk cards




    This card controlled external paging, background music and music on hold. I believe it also provided power to the other boards.




    Backplane




    Components from the power supply

    I have a few of those slocket processor/boards myself. Plus a number of normal slot processor boards. All still gathering dust. Call it my retirement account

    I recently purchased a 100+ network switches and am slowly breaking them down. Sold some of the newer switches. Also, just this weekend I attended an auction for some old TV Station equipment. Bought a truckload of stuff for less than $100 with tax and BP. Could of gotten more after the auction for free but I was full and this was 3hr drive from the house. Here are some of the boards I've pulled out so far. Did get a pentium pro CPU and 2x pentium 3 CPUs.

    Nice boards! That board with the wire- do you cut that off or leave it on? I haven't ever run across a Pentium Pro in my 10 years of scrapping yet. I guess I just haven't found the right one yet. But I have come across several Pentium 3s. Has anyone come across a slot CPU with a ceramic CPU soldered to it? If I remember to, I will try and post a picture of the one I have. It's pretty cool looking.

    After emailing ewasted I'll be de-populating the IC chips. I'll also cut the wires and the round iron pieces off the other board.

    I went dumpster diving a my place of work yesterday and found some pretty good stuff. 4 amplifiers, 3 phone systems, 5 data switches and a UPS.

    The grinder and the sawzall were a gift from my neighbor. Both work. He also said he had 2 Redmax trimmers and a table saw I could have. I don't really need them but I could probably make a few bucks off of them.

    We all need workplace dumpsters like that.
    Copper, brass, and Leather. 3 of my favorite things.

    Man - they just toss that stuff in the trash? I'm depressed every day at work when I see all the surplus / scrap that I can't have. On the University side it all goes to sale, or to a "state" scrapper. On the hospital side it all goes to 1 guy that is responsible for destruction. There is so much ewaste in the scrap it's not funny.

    Talked to a wow technician and asked him about their old equipment. He said if it's still good they refurb it. If it's old / bad they just toss it. Sort of hard to think they really do that, but now I'm wondering.

    I one time purchased a lot of outdated tv cable boxes and assorted equipment on 2 server racks from the University of Virginia hospital. Bought it on a local auction site for only $8.34 after premiums and taxes. Spent hardly anything, and made about $400 off it. Still have the 2 server racks, and they now hold a server, and a few switches among other things. I might try and dig for a picture of the lot, but I know I don't have pictures of the boards inside the cable boxes. I do still have all 40 activation cards. Each one was for 1 channel. So, 1 card got A&E, one got Discovery, one got History, etc. It was pretty cool. As a side note, anyone know of a good place to sell these cards, or SIM cards with them? Is eBay the best, or what? That's the only reason I still have them. I want to get a fair price for them, and not over price them. Thanks!
