The press glass might help but I'm afraid it might create too much glare.
You might want to steal this guy's platen idea... he only scans one page at a time to reduce the curvature issue... see picture... (that's a bluetooth camera trigger velcro'd onto the handle). Specs are in the thread viewtopic.php?f=14&t=3401&start=20 -- Page 3 or so has a setup with a light on it where he talks about glare...

Full video of the machine operation and then towards the end the un-assembled parts -- there's a good series of pictures of the un-assembled platen and handle. He used plexiglass because he could drill it himself. He indicated he would like to use glass but special equipment would be needed to drill it -- https://youtu.be/MU6H7dEzTMY

Wow this Platen is amazing. I'm sure I can find someone who can replicate something close to it. This could possibly solve a good portion of my problems. Also I was advised to use a bigger table so I would have more room to maneuver around. I will let you know how it turns out!
