Introduction: Instructables - HOW TO MAKE a LIGHT TABLE
Recycle, that is the theme of these instructable
I have a lamp with a magnifier and a fantastic “FUJI Digital Camera” that I have had in storage that I have not used in more than a year.
I need a light table to create pictures of pages out of an old textbook that I would like to publish in Facebook
This is a great project I can do at the TechShop
I first need to remove and clean up the magnifier from the lamp
I have found a small piece of scrap metal in the TechShop Sheet Metal Shop
I cut the metal and adjust it to the size I need
Then I punch holes in the metal
Then I round and smooth out the corners
and bend in the vise
into the shape I need
I screw the support into the Lamp
By the way, I made the window sticker at TechShop too.
(the sticker in the background, I made it at Techshop too :)
I then screw the camera in the support
Since I did not use this camera for more than a year, I was disappointed to discover that the camera did not work!
It is always a good idea to test the parts before starting the project ….ahaha..
Never give up!
Let’s go buy a new FUJI Digital Camera
I have bought my new camera
Now I find the position of the screw to mount the camera in the support has changed :(
It turns out the door for the battery and SD Card in the new camera is positioned differently, now I can put the support screw in a better position
so now my original project will not work :(
but I never give up ….ahahha...
I will create an interface piece between the support and the camera
I am going to describe the process to create this interface piece since it is the same process I used to create the original support. The final result is that you can create an interface with multiple possibilities.
(new camera, old support and new interface part)
And that is the first picture in the new set up :)
some manipulation is needed
like a neutral back ground, perfect alignment of the frame, focus....ahaha...
but anyway, we are in the way
see you in my next project instruction :)
Yep, I made it at Techshop
