I have just started into coin photography, and am looking for a deal on a copy stand. Or, some suggestions on building one.

I don't want to put a lot of money into it, as I don't know how much I will really use it in the long run.

Thanks for the offer!

I bought a Canon Rebel XS, but don't have it in hand yet.

From all my research it is an optimum camera for coin photography due to its low megapixel count (better sharpness), and ability to be tethered to a computer.

With what ever stand I build or buy, I would like to shoot for an option that has a precise vertical control. Maybe with a knob.

This would be handy, as all my focusing will be manually done.
