If there is anyone in the northern virginia area (alexandria to be exact), that's looking for a quick headstart on their scanner project, I have a 99% complete scanner i'm willing to sell at cost.
I followed the instructions in this post: viewtopic.php?f=1&t=333
for the most part.
I'm selling it because I literally have no tools, which means I've had to beg people to let me use their garages to do anything with it, and I'm also moving to Arizona and can't lug this with me unfortunately. I'll have to start from scratch again once I'm there.
Like I said it is 99% complete. The only issue I'm having with it is there was too much resistance on the rollers for the platen so it was pretty hard to lift up and down. Just figure out a way to attach it better and you're set.
I'm including two A1000IS 10MP cameras that I got for it. They both have power supplies, and I've taken off the front and soldered the shutter to two wires on it so you can take photos from a button. At the moment I have it hooked up to a RF receiver to activate the shutters (which you're welcome to take), but that's probably overboard and you could do just as well with any other button.

I'm asking $300, which is a little less than what I've spent on it, I'm not trying to turn a profit. Obviously you'd have to pick it up in Alexandria
, there's no shipping this thing
Any questions let me know.
