What to take off from this horizontal boring mill prior to scrapping

https://www.apexauctions.com/auction-us/itemDetails.htm?lotId 3808
I am thinking - DRO with scales - Chuck cap - T-Slotted Boring head
- Boring bar - Angle Plates - Maybe rotary table? - What else?
thanks

It's not him who scrapped it, it's the people he bought it from. He's trying to salvage what he can before rescrapping it. ;) The amount of perfectly good machines going into dumps and metal salvage in the past 50 years is enough to make any one of us angry, and want to throw up. Horrible.
A smart guy with some money would grab them all and get them over to China/India/etc. and start small companies with them, keeping them producing and saving them from a fate worse than death.

There was a time in the radiology trade when big, old "head machines" (CAT scanners) had become obsolete in favor of faster, bigger-aperture, higher-resolution machines. The old EMI and GE machines that sold for millions of dollars new were going for scrap weight.
A few enterprising individuals bought old machines, only being careful to disassemble carefully and tag everything, and not do any damage when they hauled them off. It typically took about a week to sell one for roughly $50K to somewhere in South America, with shipping at the burden of the buyer.

Like, to the photomultiplier tubes and scintillators?

My friend Terry used to buy the old Baird Gamma Cameras for parts, then make thousands reselling parts and maintenance. That's how I got a free trip to NYC in 1998. We did a PM on a Baird at a little hospital, Massapequa General, on Lon Gisland. I used to live near to Oceanside, CA and we visited Oceanside, NY on the way there. <g> We had one day in NYC so I got to go up the Empire State Building, ride the subway, and float out to Liberty and Ellis Islands. Then we had half a day for a trip to D.C., where I visited the Vietnam Memorial and Lincoln and Jefferson Monuments, taking special note of the Clinton/Viagra (Washington) Monument.
Working on those old machines took forever. The new computerized boxes sure reduce that. They're a bit more accurate, too. ;) The 14" hard disks were a trip, and data so sparse!

There are doctors here that do that. One has a hospital in India that is state of the art, only 7 years backwards. Not bad at all. A group of them will retire and run their hospital in a few years so I heard. Maybe after another round... :-)
