I stopped by one of my more rare to visit scrappers, and was disappointed
to see a number of 8" floppy drives mashed up in a huge bin of other drives
with aluminum frames. To prevent this requires I offer him enough more to
carefully handle and set aside these drives than he is getting for aluminum

So, whats an 8" floppy drive in unknown working state worth?

Are there parts I could remove that are worthwhile?

I also have to wonder what potentially NEAT thing these drives came out of
too. Sigh. Its a fine line you have to walk with scrappers, pay enough to
make it worthwhile to them, but not give them the idea that treasure might
be in there junkpile.
