Salvaging Stepper Motors, IR Gates, Encoder Wheels & Precision Rails From Old Scanners And Printers


you you you you okay so we were able to salvage from for
printers and one scanner a intact scanner bed with a servo some kind of
slow push it down no if you guys can see this so you push it down in it very
slowly moves back up so that might be useful for something LCD display another
intact scanner bed two more LCD displays USB port a USB printer size port a
speaker and mount two fans a card reader another card reader with a USB built in
some weird feet thingy that spring three small drive motors two large drive
motors two three servo assemblies with the belt drive already attached focus
focus okay and a nice clicky click button panel two
more servo motors all those these are five poles I think and so they’re not
very usable but we got the drive gears for um focus Damon got the helical drive
gears form just in case and we got a shit ton of encoders and IR gates and we
also got a bunch of precision rods so hopefully we’ll be able to make a CNC or
laser cutter and then start cutting MDF and acrylic to make a 3d printer because
we now have let’s see one two three four five so we’re gonna do six seven we now
have seven servo motors five of which are usable so yep see you guys later

  1. 3:35 can these motors be used in a cnc? It seems every time I take apart a printer I only find these types of motors.

  2. I bet your wife is pleased with you dismantling oily printer scanners on her Lounge floor : )
    If your reply to this is "I'm not married" my auto-response is "I can see why" LOL

    Just pullin ya leg of course. Great video.

  3. You referenced "two intact scanner beds" but how might you connect them to power and a computer to be able to use them?

  4. I have had the idea of trying to make a books scanner (even if only one page at a time) from "an intact scanner bed" pulled from the lid of an All-In-One or such, and then tryign to remove one or mosre sides, so that the glass/scanner can be fit right into the gutter of the book, for scanning, lke 10 pages easily, one after another, for OCR. Got any clue as to how to run these parts again After disassemply?
