Photographic Sweep Stand
by HPaul, published
Although not as elegant as the original, the stand in this design holds thin paper well and also allows for thicker sheets. The rear post helps support a higher background, and there is a plate behind the sweep that can be weighted for added stability.

I found this print to have frustrating results, pin was too small and easily falls out, had to re-scale up to have snug fit with glue. Also the closing mechanism does not snugly secure paper, even with card stock its still a loose fit and during positioning they often come apart and paper falls out. Would have been nice to have these with a fine tolerance.
Neat idea though.

To use, open the platen and feed the paper between the pivot and the stand. Holding the paper against the stand, close the platen and secure it under the hook on the stand.
The flat plates behind the curves are for weights which are needed for heavier paper. If you plan to use only one size of paper, gluing the stands to a stiff cardboard or foam-core board will make the setup easier and even more stable.
