Scavenging an old Canon IPX 4000 printer
My old printer broke down and before throwing anything away I always rip things apart hunting for parts that I can use in other projects. Most of you probably does this all the time, but for the ones who doesn’t I would just like to show all the goodies found inside a normal printer.
Loads of gears
Springs are always handy to have
Some optical sensores and limit switches
Some good motors
some motor decoder assemblies
some shaft material
