Hackerspace scanner for sale UK (Hertfordshire)

Post by superDove » 25 Oct 2015, 13:28

Hi all,

I bought a hackerspace complete kit and have realised it's overkill for what I want so am selling it. The scanner has been assembled and it's all working. The position of the light source still needs to be adjusted though to prevent light reflection on the glass like the rest of these kits.

Cost me around £800 gbp.

Bought the kit and electronics from Mark. Sourced my own anti reflective glass that cost about £80. Have spare glass as well that's included.

The link below is a photo of the actual scanner:


If you don't know what a hackerspace scanner is or can't figure it out from the info in this forum, this scanner kit is probably not for you.

Pick up only, based in Hertfordshire, Nr North London, UK. 10 mins from junction 25 of the M25.

£300 for quick sell
