Good sheet fed scanner

Hi, I'm thinking about getting a good scanner with auto-document feeding for those times I don't mind using loose pages. What are some good options on the lower cost end of the spectrum?

Thanks

Anyone know where I can access a sheet fed scanner?

Hi;

I'm broke right now and need to be able to scan 3 books that have already been cut (the pages are loose). The office supply stores will do it but are quite expensive. I'm hoping there is another place where I can have this done for free. Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks

Re: Destructive scan: page removal

Thanks guys! 8-)


There's no closeby Office Depot around me, but I'll check to see if Staples, Officemax, or Kinkos will do this

Destructive scan: page removal

Hi all,

I have a standard 9" x 6" hardcover book that I'd like to cut out the pages from in order to do a sheet-fed scan.

What's a good method of removing the pages? I was planning on taking a hack saw to the inner edge of the pages, but that is probably not the best way to do it

Thanks
