I've worked out settings on my Panasonic KV-S3065CW that work ok. between
the brittleness and bleed-through, the old ones are a challenge. They also
need to be scanned at 600dpi because of the fine print, which can be pretty
noisy without adjusting the built-in noise removal. It also runs the feed
slower which helps. There isn't any way to get around hand feeding the sheets
though, because any bit of leftover glue sticking the pages together can
crumple the second sheet.
