    I took apart some old POS systems with very similar results. 73, Mike

    This is an HP LaserJet 4 printer from the early 1990s (first is stock photo). A few nice boards and some heavy gold RAM inside.

    These boards came from a 3d Systems ThermoJet 3-d Printer. Wish I could've kept the whole thing to sell for parts or refurbishing but oh well, can't win them all. A lot of nice boards in this one which includes all the guts of a desktop computer in addition to a lot of other boards.

    It's great that you have time for printers. I'm sitting on about 13 pallets of them right now. Hoping China's National Sword thing doesn't mess up my plans. I'd ship them now, but in order to break even or maybe make a penny a pound, I have to include them in a FTL.

    I didn't see the low grade power supply board in your photo. If your shipping pallets, these can be profitable.

    Hope it works out for you and sooner rather than later! I should've taken the power board out too. Totally forgot. Taken off the side panels and popping those boards off I've found takes very little time and they're almost always some kind of mid-grade. So is worth the time for me. I pop the cartridges out too. Haven't shipped any out yet but gonna try one of the cartridge buyers and see what the return is like.

    I'm thinking of trying Dazz Cycle for cartridges. One thing interesting with them, they test stuff sent by individuals, but not schools, non profits, etc.. I may talk with my wife about setting something up for her daycare.

    These boards come from a busted Glory SDS-100 coin sorter I picked up this morning from an elementary school. Quite a few good boards here to go along with around 15lbs(!!!) insulated wire, about 5lbs aluminum, a few small motors and some 250-300lbs or so of tin. Content-wise it's somewhat analogous to a stand-up ATM except a LOT lighter (and without the keypad board). One of the pics includes a no socket motherboard which is pretty neat. And by the powerboard of grayskull this was a relatively heavy powerboard! And yes cleaned the batteries (the orange objects that could be confused with capacitors) off those two top boards.

    These boards came from a United Coin Machine video poker machine from the early 1990s.

    These boards are from a Paradigm Gaming system of some kind from the late 1990s. Didn't scrap this machine myself, got the boards from someone at the scrapyard so can't swear to what else is missing beyond the power board and monitor boards. In truth I can't even swear they all came out of the same machine but it looks about right.

    These are from a Knox Character Generator and the two keyboards that came with it. That first one weighs 2lbs, 5oz for those calculating prices for your own hunting.
