$10 tripods

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.

$10 tripods

Post by tsttm » 22 Aug 2009, 12:07

Anybody going the tripod route, may be interested in these 50" Targus tripods at radioshack for $10 each plus shipping (ends today). They retail only $16, so not real high end stuff..but may be adequate for document scanner.

i'm sticking with a two tripod design over an arm design; mostly for the increased disassemble-'ability'of my entire scanner. Right now i've been using two mini tripods adequately. I've been debating if should give these full size tripods a chance as i don't get much fine tuning with my mini tripods.

anyway, thought this might be useful for somebody
