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.

PageFlip page turner

Another possibility? This one comes with a detailed video, showing a book in the page turner. Sadly, you have to preload the pages, and there are only 10 pages that can be preloaded.

This reminds me of my tie-rack in the closet. You load in the ties, and you press a button to have it rotated...

If your book is less than 10 pages this should work fine... paperback/thick books probably not so much.

When I worked on an envelope press 99% of all paper handling was vacuum driven.
