Dear John, I've never tried to buy one, but there's an "order" button on this web page:
If you do get one, I'd love to hear your experience with it.  If it's as good as it sounds, I'll get one too.  I don't have thousands of images like you, but I do some manuscript photography in India from time to time.  I've used a downward-facing Nikon on a tripod with a remote shutter release in the past.  Good results, but quite a fiddly setup, and good light is usually difficult.

Dear Dominik
I was truly excited by your note on the Transksribus not so much by the project itself but by the scan tent that they are using. As you may know I have been both an art historian and  photographer of fine arts, of primarily Buddhist art, for five decades and the scan tent they are using with its internal lighting and ease of object manipulation seems ideal for some of our work. To that end I have tried to find one in the photographic equipment market. No luck. Do you have any idea where such a tool might be available?

Sorry to bother you with this but there are a couple of thousand flat images to prepare for the Archive, it will be a great service to me if you know. 

Thank you
