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.

Does anyone have a clue as to the hardwire kentsin is using
in picture 14 of the mainpage? The "flat beam" tripod head type stuff is
what I'm interested in.

It's not a special product. He's just using square tubing and flat steel or aluminum strap that any metal shop sells. There are more pics on his website. Love his design, hope he's scanned many books with it.

Oh, nevermind, I see what you mean. Those are the towers from two copystands. Check his posts here, I think he linked them at one point.
