My book shooter MK-V

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.

My book shooter MK-V

Post by Netty » 31 May 2020, 18:40

Hello ,
this my version of Hiroshi Yanagisawa's MK-V.
I've made it in MDF, aluminium and anti-glare glass.
All parts bought in Castorama (french DIY store)

Nice. I see no hole in the bottom for light. How are you planning on lighting the pages you're scanning?
I built one out of cardboard and lit it using LED strips up the sides near the glass.

This is a testing project for the moment.
I plan to paint all the inside part in white and put a LED light like this one inside :
