Yes still available.

If you're wanting to keep it *as a toaster* then I have all the
internals but...

The heating element has burnt and vaporised one strand at the bottom. I
never considered it worthwhile to repair as a toaster... Hence the
interconnect wiring was simply snipped during removal.

You're welcome to all the bits. With a replaced heating element, it
could be good to go again.

The existing circuitry likely still works and interrupts the mains after
a set delay. That then de-energises a solenoid which then releases the
toast lift cage to spring up. Surprisingly elaborate.

I can bundle up all the bits for when I next pass by the Hackspace, or
for the next NLUG meet.
