    Hi,
    Its been a while since I have used my Epson V850 scanner, and in that time I have moved house and dont have any of the spacer sheets that I had made previously. If I remember rightly (thats the issue there) I think I used TMAX or TRIAX to make the spacers but really cant remember............I only have HP5 right now so not sure if that will work?
    What I was thinking of doing is getting 2 thin sheets of gas cut to the size of the scanner bed then sandwich the 8x10 Negative in-between ..............what do you think??

    You probably should cut glass rather than cut gas. :sick:
