Footsie Bookscanner

Built a scanner? Started to build a scanner? Record your progress here. Doesn't need to be a whole scanner - triggers and other parts are fine. Commercial scanners are fine too.

Would it be useful if the book cradle would rise up on two ropes up? Which is the better rigid book cradle or more flexible? This book scanner is of interest to me and I will try this idea and build my own version. I'm just a poor time to build anything from wood or other exceptions ... But I'm going to try anyway! Two Canon IXUS 160 cameras have been ordered already ...

Hey Malcolm! How high is the book when it's down? How high are the LED lights from glass disks?
A really brilliant idea to lift the book Cradle with the rope up! Easy to build and look good to work! Thanks to Malcolm for sharing this!
