    Projector mounting recomendation

    Projector mounting recomendation-barnproj.jpg

    I need a projector mount which will allow me to mount a quite heavy projector (<10kg) to the face of the large beam (above the scaffold) facing the end wall. The lens of the projector will be about level with the top of the beam, the projector mounted upside down (?). Any one know of anything suitable or have any ideas?

    I'd give KPMS a ring and ask them, myself - they've solved a few awkward projectors for me in the past, and they'll just sell you the mount if that's all your after instead of someone to do the work. Shout if you want their number, don't want to post it and end up advertising by mistake!

    Looks quite easy unless I am missing something....

    Can you not just fix a bit timber or steel plate to make an L shape on the rear of that beam and sit the projector on that thus the projector is the right height and sorted, if you want to "hang" the projector then do it the other way up and jobs a good un. Quick easy and simple I've done one before that way fastened off a beam just made an L in steel plate and bent it and bolted with coach bolts all the way through the beam in two places and put holes in the top of the plate to screw the projector into and it was all sorted and worked fine and still hanging to this day

    Sounds like a plan - just need to make sure it's not ... ugly or it won't pass the SWMBO test (although a big projector is severely straining that). Maybe use aluminium extrusion and cut a base plate .. thanks, I think that's put me on the right track.

    If its too heavy for the steel plate on its own, perhaps a fairly thin steel cable for that extra bit of support?
