I "haven't" acquired a 50W CO2 laser (working) and several small
labratory x-ray setups that can attest to that fact.
If your scrap dealer is telling you this stuff, you aren't nearly good
enough friends with him. :) I've got a really good repore going with
the guys at my primary scrap/surplus place, which helps immensely in
getting interesting stuff, for cheap. When I was going through a huge
load of early-80s era equipment they managed to get a month or so ago,
the guy said to me "I'm glad you're getting this stuff, before the
pilferers got to it."
