HP Scanjet 3200C
Dremel tool or sander/cutter or the like
spray paint (black)
couple plastic drawer handles or plastic wire straps/locks
riveting tool :: velcro :: drill and bits :: trunk/chest catch/locks
Step 1: Remove Scanner Components and Parts.
Step 2: Line Up Your Pedals Inside.
Also, you might want to flatten some plastic parts of the scanner that's protruding and on the way of your other pedals.
Tools needed :: sander/cutter or dremmel cutting tools or the like.
note: After you make the cuts, you might wanna sand a little bit the sharp edges so the plastic wont scratch the sides of the pedals.
I dont want to recycle and use the glass cover :: If you decide not to use/reuse the glass cover of the scanner, then you can skip this part and move on to step 3. Just place your pedals and lock them in place with velcro, plastic wire straps, or what have you to keep those pedals in place.
Step 3: Cut the Bottom Side of the Scanner.
Step 4: Optional: Cover the Big Gapping Hole.
I then re-used the plastic that was taken/sawed off from the bottom side of the scanner to cover the area. I riveted these in place.
I then drilled a new hole where my mono OUT plug would go.
note: if you don't want to drill a hole for the plug, you can use an L shaped guitar wire plug for your pedal's OUT. That way it wont be sticking out of the sides of the scanner.
Step 5: Paint and Fit.
Also, depending on how many pedals you have, you can use velcro and stick your pedals onto the bottom of the scanner bed. Also you can use those plastic wire organizer straps. You just need to drill holes at the bottom and hold them thru the plugs.
Here, I used plastic drawer handles. I cut these handles depending on the height of the mono plugs on the sides of the pedal. These drawer handles secure and hold the pedals nicely from moving around and side to side and hold them tightly from falling off when you are carry the whole pedal board.
Step 6: Installing the Handles and Locks.
Also installed are the trunk/chest catch lock.
You can spray paint these also to match the color of your pedal board.
Last but not the lest, I layered the sides with felt material (can be bought in walmart or hobby stores i.e., hobby lobby or michaels.) to fit the pedals and makes it look cleaner and uncluttered.
Step 7: A See-thru-glass Scanner Pedal Board :: Pedal Case!
Total Cost: $8: for the paint and trunk/chest catch lock. everything else recycled from something.
