a good way to keep a sheet of veneer flat on the crumb tray?
Every sheet of veneer I’ve used, whether PG or not, has some kind of curl to it. I understand that’s natural, it’s wood, and it has variations. I have no problem with that. But it makes it hard to position the image when the scanner doesn’t have a good focus on the material, and the fan can blow some of the lighter pieces out of position. I’ve used blue painter’s tape, but it doesn’t have the stickum power to hold fast to the honeycomb surface of the crumb tray. I have some Gorilla tape, but that stuff will pull your skin off, let alone a relatively delicate surface of veneer. Not to mention, it ain’t cheap, and I’ve got other things to use it for.
I’ve considered metal weights, but the weight heavy enough to hold the curl down is likely to be too thick to fit under the gantry. How about some strong neodymium magnet? Would that work?
Any advice here would be appreciated, though I might not be smart enough to take it.
