I used my trusty old HP ScanJet IIcx. It was made in 1994 and still 
works like a charm, although the foam under the cover pad just failed 
so I removed the cover and used a handy 1981 HP catalog as a 
paperweight. These scanners turn up on ebay now and then for less 
than the shipping charge. It's built like a tank, and is definitely 
worth hanging on to!

I run the scanner with VueScan by Hamrick Software. It does an 
excellent job of controlling the older SCSI scanners. I have an old 
Adaptec SCSI to PCI interface card in a computer with a new 
motherboard with 5-year-old technology.
