Anyone know where I can access a sheet fed scanner?

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.

Hi;

I'm broke right now and need to be able to scan 3 books that have already been cut (the pages are loose). The office supply stores will do it but are quite expensive. I'm hoping there is another place where I can have this done for free. Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks

Some copy machines have a sheet feed scanner built in.
Some libraries have copy machines.
You might try calling some local print shops to see if they can do it more cheaply.
You could buy a sheet feed scanner and re-sell or return it when you are done.

Yup check craigslist, or see who does legal scanning in your area. Probally about 3 cents a page.
