Many thanks Simon!
I am very sorry for the late reply, I have been very busy working on some projects.

In the next 48 hours if you get The Scanner I will send you Mind Veil for free.
The beautiful thing is that they work perfectly using the same single notepad! So you will have to powerful tools for mind reading using the same notepad!

Jose, I have just purchased the 'Scanner'. I'm impressed (pun intended) and I appreciate the review Simon has given to this simple but brilliant tool. I did not receive 'Mind Veil' however. What do I need to do to get it?

Thanks Jose. Now I'm doubly impressed. I love the simple concept and will be using it from now on.

I have made my purchase, and I am eager to make one of these up and see how well it works. This will be at least my fourth impression device (Osterlind's pad, Annemann's Mental Masterpiece as taught by Max Maven and Thom Bleasdale's Tommy Pad being the other three), and I should note I also own the TeleThought wallet which sort of achieves a similar result. I do not know why I gravitate toward these things. Can't wait to see how this thing plays in the real world.

I put together my first Scanner this evening. It makes very crisp impressions and the angles are really great. I am going to have a lot of fun with this one!

Thank you, Jose!

As one of the original purchasers of the IA Pad...I'm sad to see that it's price has dropped and it has been repackaged.

Just ordered... fantastic. I am making up the pad this afternoon. Plus, the ideas in the secret section are sensational as well

I'm having the same problem, and have just been using a clipboard. Neither Staples, nor oFfice Depot, nor Target had appropriate pads. It's frustrating. As a clipboard however, I am very impressed. The work is easy, and it does it's job well. That's why I'm frustrated, as I know this thing works beautifully!

The material Staples uses for their book binding works great. I cut a peice and glued it to the inside cover of a 3x5 memo pad. Once I applied the secret ingredient over the plastic the impressions were fine. But it's an unworkable solution. The gimmick is easily seen when spectator rips their sheet out.

Jose should have included a link in his pdf to where he buys his pads. The ones I have tried simply do not work.

The gimmick is invisible if you follow Jose's instructions. It is covered by a sheet of paper.

In theory, but the truth is people grab and rip. They may lift cover sheets along with their own and discover the secret. I suppose using a proper pad the gimmick is hidden or at least better camouflaged but with my makeshift pad it's glaringly obvious.

I'm sure this works. In fact I know it works. I'm just sore because the maker does not respond to emails about this product.

I dog ear a lower corner of the page upwards for the spectator as I hand them the pad, to facilitate an easy pick up of a single sheet afterward.

I have taken a photo of the pads that I use, in the hope that those who are still unsure about exactly what they need will get a better idea. I've attached the file to this message. These pads cost less than £1 each. The type of pad I'm showing is available in many places. I bought these at Tesco, which is the UK's biggest supermarket. The US and other countries all sell something similar.

I use these for two different types of imp pad: The Tommy Pad and The Scanner.

Here's a difference between the two that I noticed just recently. If you put each pad away for a few days you need to reset The Scanner, while the Tommy Pad is ready to go. Not a significant difference, but one worth knowing about.

Very nice touch. That would work with the Tommy Pad too.
There is a subtlety in the Tommy Pad instructions that directs the participant to remove only one page. This would work for The Scanner too.
