Copy Stand or Book Scanner Drill Stand

Introduction: Copy Stand or Book Scanner Drill Stand

I am using Drill stand as smart scan stand or Copy Stand to scan books using ‘cam scanner software’ with the help of a tablet or smart phone holder attachment devised by myself. Scan Books ! This attachment is stainless steel wire from a hanger, bent nicely to hold your tablet or smart phone. Do not buy again smart phone scanner stand. This Drill stand, which you can use for your hand drill to be held  for creative works, will do the job by focusing the holder with the help of an Allen(hexagonal) key.

    Dear CraftClarity,
    A light handy drill stand laying in the corner winced at me while i was holding my smart phone to scan a document. Ha fine then I told him(The drill stand) to hold the smart phone while i arrange the document. I made him to say YES with help of the stainless steel cloth hanger wire piece. Done !!! The purpose duly met. I really thank you for your ever first appreciation. THANK YOU
