I received my import HS10 yesterday (finally!) and was running it with massive digital keystone correction for last night. This morning, I got sick of the keystone correction and decided to go out and get it mounted.


I went out to Home Depot and picked up:


1 Heavy duty shelf support (500lbs per piece--not like my wall won't give out first)

3 5mm socket cap machine screws

1 6mm flat head machine screw

1 6mm wing nut

a bunch of assorted washers

a 5/8" thick, 11" dia. plywood circle


This is my ghetto rigging:

I have the bracket mounted into a wall stud (unintentional)--I woulda used drywall anchors if I hadn't hit the stud.

I measured out the mounting holes of the HS10 and drilled out appropriate holes in the plywood circle. I measured the approximate center of the mount and drilled that out for the attachment to the wall bracket.

There it is attached to the bracket--I hope the plywood, 6mm bolt and wingnut are up to the task of holding up the HS10 without dropping it on my head!

How the completed thing looks. Maybe I'll go back and stain or paint the plywood to black so it doesn't look so "ghetto".

Nicely (and cheaply) done! I doubt you would have gotten away with just drywall screws without the studs though. I'll bet there are a few people out there that put out the $400 for an official mounting kit slapping their heads and yelling "Doh".

Perhaps. My friend did a DIY with adjustable posts, and the wife preferred the look of the bought mounts. The $200 I spent on a manufactured one saves me the day's worth of work to make it look good enough to please the boss (and myself).
