I recently picked up a job at an electronic recycling center. Harris
is right around the corner from us, as well as a bunch of technical
schools and aerospace related businesses. All of thier old stuff ends
up at the shop to be resold as surplus or broken down and scrapped.

There tends to be to much to process, and inside space is limited.
Excess equipment is stored outside in tents, and it goes to crap quite
quickly unfortunately. The humidity and rain destroys stuff outside
quickly. I am uncertain of how many requests I will get, but if anyone
is looking for something in particular, please send me an email and I
will keep an eye out for you. The place is a goldmine, and a lot of
nice older gear is going to waste because the store owners do not know
what it is.

Examples of stuff that comes in are old microcomputers like the c64,
nice 486 like machines with good isa cards in them, TONS of HP and
tectronics test equipment, ham radio gear, you name it.
There is a ton of good stuff here, i am trying to find some a good
home before it gets stripped out.
Some of this stuff works fine, the tandy 1000 computer I picked up
this weekend works flawlessly for example. Other things are in a
broken or parts state, but within reach of repair. There is a lot of
new gear there as well, not many machines come in with nice graphics
cards in them, but tons of workstations with lots of ram and hard
drives are common. We get so many servers they are broken down almost
immediately unless they are particularly new or unique in some way.

Lets see how busy my inbox gets, if you are in need of something,
please send me an email, i can keep an eye out for it and hopefully be
of service.I work on Saturdays, that is the day i will be on site to
look for things.

Stuff will be priced as surplus/used. Hopefully i  can be of use and
keep some of this stuff out of the scrap pile.
