Disassembling LaserJet 6L

I just disassembled my old broken laser printer for parts.

Really enjoyed taking this thing apart, the mechanical design is perfect and from an area when things were still being built with maintenance in mind.

The recycle gems are the stepper motor (unfortunately only one), the laser unit and a bunch of sensors, switches and other low-level electronics parts. Most of the metal and plastic will probably be thrown away since it is too specialized.
