Drake Ravensmith wrote:Okay Clemd, this time I know for sure what happened with your cradle. What you did was screw the base of your cradle just slightly left of where you ought to have. In this pic you can see that your cradle is able to be placed as far right as you want since your slides need to slide right to begin a book. You could have simply unscrewed you base, shifted .5/.75 inches right and screwed it back down to fix your problem. At worst, your cradle would occasionally bump the right side base. Even then, since the cradle can only be shifted so far right before bumping into the 3x8 piece it is clamped to, you could have also shortened the base if you wanted.

Also, I have a question about your switch. Doesn't it have 4 small batteries in it that will eventually need to be replaced? Is it going to be a problem to remove it from the glue to change them?
Drake, I have added my third light, and it works very well. (I'll try to post a pic by the end of the day) However, I find that these particular LED lights produce a blue tint on the page in the rendered image, which I adjust in Adobe Light Room 3 with no problem. Tomorrow, though, I'm going to try a different lighting system using the lights found here. You can also order the same light from Amazon.com. The LED's I'm using emit "white" light at 5000-6500 lumens. I'm hoping the new lights will produce between 6000-7500 lumens (If I've got the rating correct). As soon as I figure out how I'm going to mount them, I'll test them, upload a few pics and perhaps even include a few comparison shots of test-pages. I am very satisfied with my end results (wish there was some place for everyone to post samples in order to compare and question each other more); however, I just ran across someone who produced the final Harry Potter book in Rowling's series that TOTALLY blows mine away. I'm having trouble contacting this person, as he/she is a member of a Torrent group that has no means of directly contacting members. (The person's username...in case anyone knows him/her...is BeB1234567 - hope this person doesn't mind me linking him/her here, but this book rocks!).
