I often cruse through the local scrap yard and not find anything that I want. But yesterday there was a console and I striped out of it some useful stuff.
A power strip about six feet long with an outlet about every 10 inches. It will replace the power strip behind my bench that has about half as many outlets.
Another power strip with nine outlets and one switch. Short only about 20 inches long.
A bunch of power cords with plugs.
A temperature controller.
A 24 volt very small power supply.
A panel with a dozen dpdt center off toggle switches.
A bunch of terminal strips.
And not part of the console, a electric heater assembly from a heat pump and a nice sized box for controlling three model trains with three reostats and toggle switches.
All told 35 lbs of stuff. They asked $9 ,but I gave them $10. It will all even out eventually. Not earth shattering, but I hate to buy stuff like that retail.
Topping out the day, I got a package from China with a dozen 5 gram tubes of diamond lapping paste. It was just over $10.
