Patrick – are all these tools you have listed your personal items in your possession?
if all the below tools and equipment are yours, I strongly suggest you clean them up,
apply power to them to see if they work, photos of any name tags will help a lot.
are you having a garage sale ??

bad photos – no information – unknown condition.
put them on CraigsList for $50 for the lot just to clean up the corner.
if you really want to sell them, and you really need the money, pull them outside,
wash and clean up, take a lot of photos of any name tags you find.
find a way to apply power to them to see if they work – and how they work.
a full and exact description will be to your benefit.
they could be an air filter, or an air filter with a heater – we don’t know.
and we have no idea what part of the world all these items are in.

Restaurant/manufacturing ventilators or something like that would be my guess, particulate filters of some kind perhaps.. As a practical matter I imagine they’re worth about as much as an old photo copier, which is to say if you put them out at the street somebody might pick them up.

There’s so much junk in this country people won’t pay for salvage items like that I reckon. I think you can sell that sort of stuff to a scrap yard by the ton but it doesn’t pay much and they may have minimums.

Find out exactly what they are, test them, and put them on ebay if you want. You might get a few bucks. Back in the day I learned to rip motors off old junk and I got a few motorless machines running with those motors. The mounts matter though, usually, assuming they run off standard household current.
