Stepper motors many gears and stainless steel shafts. Bearings, A nice flat glass plate Possibly power supplies and if you can soft them out the stepper motor driver circuits.

Next question will be HOW? Over to someone else.

Sounds like it is worth ripping apart for the goodies. If someone knows this machine and can add information .... git er done!

Thank you for your assistance to my question.
