I am back from a short hiatus overseas for a job.  Today I bought the oddest unit ever for $200.  Actually it was 2 units.

Hopefully you guys can see it.  I will go back tomorrow to move some things so that we can see the equipment better and will post more pics.  I know I can make some decent money just from the scrap.  The is a huge piece of copper as well as tons of aluminum.

WOW! I would do some serious research on that Minh. Decent reconditioned CT scanners can bring 60-300K depending on the age and model. Also, you could make good money parting it out on eBay. Good to have you back, I was wondering where you went. Let us know when you find out the age/manufacturer/model.

I did some research and it was a Imatron machine built in 1999.  Unfortunately the company was bought out by GE and the technology was shelved.  After going through a couple of cat scan specialist around the country I decided to scrap.  I did dig through it and found some great parts that I can sell via ebay.  I found a Cryo-Torr high vacuum pump worth around $2k and Ambu Mark III resuscitator worth $100 just to name a couple of things. 
I called a company called DFW recyclers and they came out and picked up everything.  I only got 15 cents a pound but in was 9000 pounds so made $1350.  A clean $1000 profit for not a ton of work. Plus if I can sell the stuff on Ebay maybe clear another $1.5 - 2k.  Not a bad investment for $250.

Not too shabby, especially considering you didn't have to move it.
