Re: Nice Archivist build post at the r/datahoarder subreddit

Re: New project inspired from Hiroshi Yanagisawa's project

Very interesting, I have been looking to the youtube file and noticed that this gentlemen has his platen at 110 degrees (4.15 min into the video) which Daniel said would be the best angle to reduce reflection.
