Scavaging Parts

I found this printer at a garage sale for $2.
I like to find old mechanical/electrical devices and take them apart with my kids.
In addition to just having fun and learning how things work, we were able to salvage the stepper motors.  I want to try hooking them up to the Arduino (http://www.arduino.cc/) that my brother gave me for Christmas.  If it works, we are going to try and make a reprap (http://reprap.org/) using parts printed from my Ultimaker 2 (https://www.ultimaker.com/).
