Fix the feed on your Neat Scanner

April 7, 2015 / Updated: April 7, 2015 / Lena Shore

This morning, I am Office MacGyver.

I love my Neat Scanner. The only thing about my Neat that has bugged me is that checks don’t always feed in straight and don’t scan well. They sometimes need a second pass through the scanner if you didn’t get them in very straight. This morning I got a brainstorm. Two beads and some elastic! Bingo. And I’m doing the happy dance!

So, if you suffer from the same issue, give it a try. I’m sure something could also be done with rubber bands. I might go crazy and try to find some beads with more grip. Washers might work too.
