Build Your Own Projector Mount…

ProjectorHandy how-to from Gadgetopia “Being on a budget, we got two things for our business: the smallest conference room we could reasonably get away with, and the cheapest decent projector we could find. This means that the projector is pretty big, and takes up an entire end of the conference table. I needed a way to mount it to the ceiling, but projector mounts run between $100-$200. They typically come in two types: Spidery-Articulated-Aluminum-Dealie and Pole-With-A-Mounting-Plate. One of the Pole-With-A-Mounting-Plate products I found on the net claimed, “mates with any 1 1/2 inch pipe” in its description. That sent me to Home Depot, and I came up with this rig for about $40. Read on for a rough how-to.” Thanks Star. Link.

    If you are happy with a mount that is closer to the ceiling, I have a projector mount that I made that didn’t cost me near $40. I probably spent $5 to $10 on it. I have pictures of the mount with an Infocus 4805 projector, but the same concept applies. In fact, I’ve also used the same design for a BenQ. Basically it is two pieces of wood and some bolts. Enjoy the pictures.

    There are also a few pictures at the end of my homemade screen.
