    thanks for giving us another cool weekend project.
    I checked out the PDF and noticed that the article refers to a circuit diagram on “the next page”, but the document only has one page, and no circuit diagram. Where can I find it?

      @Roger Meier – Hey Roger. I just posted a PDF of the schematics. Didn’t realize it wasn’t in the PDF.

    Awesome, thanks!

    How long did it take to make the scanner? Was it hard? Do you think a 12 year old could make this with a little help?
