Default Should I keep any of these parts?

So I have an old random noise generator that I asked everyone here about not too long ago, got no answer so I decided to turn it into a case for a gainclone. What I am wondering, does anyone think that there are any parts worth keeping when I remove everything? I'll attach a few picks of both sides

Frankly most of it looks usable. YOu have nice switches with extention rods to. The rods are hard to find and not cheap. Tube sockets are nice to have. The transformer is likely useful and for sure ebayable. If you have a few junk drawers just undo all of it and sort stuff into the drawers and save it. Are those caps or cap covers? Cap covers = save them.

The film caps and power resistors are useful.

Hi dmongrain,
You aren't going to do any tube based projects?

Almost everything is useful. The tubes, switches, tag boards, sockets and transformer are things I would keep. Add the meter to that list.

A random noise generator can be useful. But these days there are solid state versions that take up less power.

I'm in Georgetown, where are you?

Over in Whitby, I am thinking of making a tube amp eventually, just getting into the hobby and was thinking that chip based amps are a lot easier to get started with.

I think that it sounds like a better way to phrase my question is:

What parts are not good any longer and are worth disposing of?

As a GR collector and user, why would anyone want to destroy a nice useful GR1390 random noise generator? If it doesn't work, it can be fixed. You can make a nice little pink noise filter for it. Or, put "general radio" in quotes in the search function of eBay and you'll find it's quite salable. Nothing will ever be built to the standards of GR again.
