DIY Bookscanner Assembly

I have written about the arrival and packaging of my bookscanner kit from diybookscanner.eu in a previous post.

Here I document the assembly, which was really easy due to the excellent videos by Daniel Reetz on YouTube. I recommend watching them all before even starting to do anything with the kit. Regarding tools needed for the assembly: An electric drill and an electric screw driver are really handy. You’ll need a Philips and a hex tip screwdriver. A rubber hammer is useful but a normal hammer and a piece of scrap wood will do. I am not going to repeat what Daniel has documented so perfectly but just show a series of pictures that document the assembly. This is essentially done in an afternoon.
