I had to wait a month as well, but a big chunk of that was James waiting formSeymourAV to get more material in stock.

He should at least be honest about it. No harm in telling someone 20 business days if thats what it is going to take. I went through Ebay and I had him confirm numerous times 10 business days. Did he ship yours yet?
post #304 of 978
I guess I should just call or email them and see what's going on. I still have no idea if they got my order. I just have the notice from paypal. I know it will take a while, I just want some acknowledgement that they received my order.

I called the other day and he says they're still waiting on screen material to come in...

nope not yet.. He left me a message Thursday and said they would work throughout the weekend to try to get caught up a little and mine should ship this morning and I will receive a shipping notification when it ships so I hope to get some word soon on that.

Basically his explination was they had 2 shipments late over the holidays and it put them behind which I completely understand. But it would be nice to have better communication because this is my forst proj/screen so I can't wait to get this thing up to enjoy it already

milez28 : did you get your screen? please update the status if that is okay
post #308 of 978
I was told that if they get caught up with everything, mine should ship out on the 5th. He will let me know if it will be later.
post #309 of 978
Mine arrives later today. Ordered on Dec. 19.

post #311 of 978

post #313 of 978
i just received my 130" screen today
time to put it together
hope its easy
any tips?
post #314 of 978
^ Take your time!! Make sure to stretch it evenly across the top and bottom. Be patient and expect some wrinkles.
post #315 of 978
Is the Jamestown screen paintable? Best guess. Seems like probably they are from the descriptions. I plan on ordering a white screen but I want to keep my options open for a high contrast grey solution if ambient light becomes a problem.
post #316 of 978
yes u need A LOT of patience to put the screen together
oh and its BIG
post #317 of 978
Probably about 130" big........lol
post #318 of 978
i thought the screen material was supposed to be flush with the face of the frame?
post #319 of 978
No why would it be that way? All screen manufacturers make the screen flush with the back side of the frame.
post #320 of 978
the wall that i am going to hang my screen on doesn't have wood studs,only metal studs.
what kinda screws should i use to hang my jamestown screen?
and what should i use as far as drywall screws?
post #321 of 978
They make drywall screws for metal studs. I would use the same to attach the metal cleat that James supplies.

Here is a link to the type to use with metal studs clickie

Keep in mind you CAN use traditional drywall screws with metal studs but a finer thread screw will be much easier.

does HD sell them?

thanks for your help
post #323 of 978
What kind of hardware is included in the box for hanging? Does he give you any drywall anchors or screws?
post #324 of 978
You get a French cleat.
post #325 of 978
^ You get 2 french cleats, drywall screws to attach one cleat to the wall and some wood screws to attach the other cleat to the back of the frame.

@domingos38, Yes I am sure they sell them at HD, Lowes or any hardware store.
post #326 of 978
So, the frame only hangs from that one point where the cleat is? I was thinking you would have to hang it from all four corners of the screen.

Just in case anyone was wondering, I called James about this. He says the screen material is PVC/vinyl based, and he sees no reason it should not be paintable. I agree, it should take paint nicely.

This fact sold the screen for me, if I am not happy with the image quality I can change it to be whatever I want via DIY means. Ordered a 120" white
post #328 of 978
what? the screen only hangs on 1 french cleat?
the screen weights 38 freakin pounds
theres gotta be a better way
post #329 of 978
Wider screens are provided with two french cleats. I used two piano hinges, so I could access behind the screen more easily.
post #330 of 978
^ My screen is 121" wide and only came with 1 cleat. It seems fine but one day I suppose it could come crashing to the ground.....that would only mean it's time to upgrade!!
