Re: LC 2000- an easy metal build

Oh, gee, I'm afraid I mis- labeled a word here. What I meant to say was foot switch, not pedal. I'll edit that above.

Re: LC 2000- an easy metal build

Thank you for the kind words. I am fleshing this project out as I get my ducks in line. I can report that the velvet I used is well, really hard to photograph. It is beyond black, so sorry about the photo quality. Coming up in the future, I'll post some results from this machine. Please stand by.

I remember reading a previous posting's wish for a library cart sized scanner, at the time I found that...
