Re: Hand Scanner Setup

I had that exact scanner for a few days while I was building my first bookscanner. It didn't work well: - Like a flatbed scanner there is an edge all the way around the optic window and the scanner couldn't get into the inside gutters of the books... especially paperbacks. - You have to roll the sca...

Re: 'Pyramid'-shaped scanners (Tamtus, Atiger)

$1300 to $1600 price tag (http://www.teleread.com/paul-biba/tamtu ... k-scanner/).
