Daniel Reetz, the founder of the DIY Book Scanner community, has recently started making videos of prototyping and shop tips. If you are tinkering with a book scanner (or any other project) in your home shop, these tips will come in handy. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCn0gq8 ... g_8K1nfInQ

I thought folks on this list might be interested in a heart-warming 4-minute TED talk by a fusion-energy physicist-turned-farmer describing a very DIY Book Scanner -like effort to open-source design what he identified as the 50 machines needed to run a civilization. Spoiler fact: his community has designed 8 of them so far.

Awesome talk, thanks for the pointer. I've wanted to do the same thing for a machine shop, starting with basic hand tools, but this is much more laudable.
