DIY Projector Ceiling mounts
Hey guys, just wondering if anyone here has done their own Ceiling Projector mounts before? I have a JVC NX5 but I don't have much confidence on the mount I am currently using. I was thinking of trying the DIY route with possibly some MDF etc. I am looking for ideas on going about this route to make it stable, secure and most importantly, strong enough to support 50lbs or more.
I was thinking of doing like a box for it using MDF, but when looking at the manual, they require a lot of space on the sides, which would require a pretty huge box. Also thought of just using a board (much like the Chief attachment) then using some 2x4s to connect it to the ceiling. Also thought of a flat board that it would sit on, then suspend it from the ceiling with wire of some sort, but I doubt I could get it all the same length. Obviously it would all be painted black as well.
If anyone has done it before, can you include pics and what you used? Or any ideas in general.
Thanks for any advice and information.
