What should I do with this fax machine, electric typewriter, and other junk?

I've got this stuff in the hopes of making something. I have not taken these apart yet, I also have a few adding machines that I saved from the way to the dumpster in the hopes of reuse as robotics and what not.

You could start with sorting the "junk" (aka. "treasure") into different categories based upon userability. then you could take them apart to 1, see if and how they work, or 2, see what cool stuff you could make out of it. Look up junkbots on solarbotics.com, they have some cool books, kits and other stuff
