Cool, I'll do that.  Looks like I have stuff for a few different 2.X 

I also have a lot of 1.1 stuff; considerably more than is on Bitsavers 
right now -- do you have more left to scan for that?

I also have a dozen or so Software Technical Bulletins from 1986-1989 or 
so -- SunOS 3.x era (not a complete set).  Any interest there?

Yes, it does seem to be working ok, though I haven't done much with it 
yet, just scanned in a few hundred pages of a random manual just to try 
it out.  Looking forward to seeing details on your workflow.

Cool.  Any recommendations for places to purchase spares from?  The 
rollers in mine are a bit dirty, but they seem to have cleaned up OK and 
i haven't had any jams or problems with paper feeding (fingers crossed), 
but I'm sure I'll need them sooner or later.
