I've actually been using this since my Tommy Pad days. I do understand the fear of the spectator pinching off more than what he's supposed to, and have tried a couple of ways for securing the page (including repositionable glue) but have found that just the bent corner to be sufficient.

The pads Ted shows above can be purchased in 3 packs for a dollar at Big Lots here in the states. I am really surprised by some of the comments on this thread. JOse has done the right thing here he realized he reinvented a previously released product bought it's rights and has been very generous with his offerings. I communicated with JOse when he first appeared here concerning a peek wallet he was working on earlier on we exchanged some useful info and found him wanting to do the right thing. He has seemed to be open to communication and taking feedback from those far more experienced then him and his creativity runs pretty freely. I do not own SCANNER but I have not found one bad review on the product, I wish him well with this product.

Mr edwards, could you please give us a few more details about these pads? brand? manufacturer? and such. I have been having trouble finding pads as well, all the ones around here have like a poster board cover.

I did not find the right pads at an office supply store. It seems like discount stores and supermarkets are the places that carry the pads we are looking for.

Those tesco pads are ruled I think, anyone ever have trouble with a drawing being done on a ruled pad?

It doesn't bother me to use it but from an aesthetic point of view when performing I like to have blank pads which seem harder to come by

I have been using the tesco ones for a couple of years and sainsburys have a similar addition

Thanks for the tip to go to Big Lots. I've been looking all over for plain poly-plastic cover pads like this and had no luck until today. 8-packs for $2.50! The brand is bridgeport (distributed by: Big Lots) made in china. I gave it a try with the gimmick and it works great.

I will be going to Big Lots later this evening. Thanks for the tip, I had been getting really flustered trying to find the pads.

No luck at a Big Lots here! I have pads from José's previous IMP endeavor which I found easily. They work for this. I'm still looking for more pads to build the Scanner as intended. Not had any luck at all. Its crazy out there! Smile

Definitely, I thought I was going to be able to find the pads easy, and have trouble finding the secret ingredient, but its been the exact opposite. It took me all of 3 minutes to find the latter, and I have been searching for weeks to find the right pads

Well I did find some pads at Big Lots. The covers are a bit more flimsy than I prefer, but eh. 2 bucks for a pack of 8, not too bad. I'm going to make up a couple scanners now and play with em tonight to see how they handle.

Has anybody from Germany bought this Ebook?

I would like to know whether the probs are easy to buy in Germany.

Thanks

I'm not sure about the pads in germany. I actually had a bit of a time finding the proper pads here in the states so not sure what that suggests. The Pad though is only one of several uses for The Scanner. I actually use it more with a clipboard. I have a clear plastic board with The Scanner applied to it which works fantastically. It's really a clever and adaptable means to an end. I haven't used any other I********* De***e before, and now I don't know that I'd need to. If you like cheap, DIY, lo-tech stuff then jose's Scanner is a surefire way to go, in my mind.
