    Here is my latest breakdown, it was an old code-a-phone telephone answering machine. It had sat outside and someone had "borrowed" the powercord.
    Here is what it looked like, it was heavy steel.


    I ended up with 2 or 3 transformers, 5 relays, and 3 or 4 smaller boards that plugged into the larger "motherboard", and a handful of wire with gold pin connectors. Probably about 5 or 6 lbs of steel in the case and insides.


    One of the plug in cards with pretty gold female pins inside the plug-in on the bottom.


    Here is the inside of the front face with a gold plated multi-position switch.


    And here is the "motherboard" that the other boards plugged into, look at the long gold plated pins, about 1" long.



    I don't think I would buy them but their worth picking up.

    Hey Mechanic did you see a date on those boards? They look like they might have been made in the 60's, alot of gold and silver. Thanks for the post.

    I'll be honest, I was more interested in getting a few pic's before the sun went down. I would guess it late 60's early 70's.
    Those are the prettiest pins/connectors I've seen in a while. I just had to show them off. My next project will be a Tecktronic Dual trace scope. Before anyone has a hissy, it was outside all winter.

    I'm not going to throw a hissy fit but I remember an HP ad where one of of there scopes was left in a lake and still worked when they dried it out. A Tek should be just as good. lol

    Maybe if someone had not "borrowed" the powercord on this one also.

    If your talking the 3rd pic then those are cap's, tantalum possibly, or epoxy caps.

    Thanks Blacksteel for bringing this back to life. Thanks Mech. for the information. Very interesting and increased the learning curve. What is tantalum? Stupidity at it's it best.

    You are quite welcome and that's the reason I put this together. Now I have to get busy and start adding to it.
