As I promised to some awhile back here's my DIY projector mount.

Initially I built a mount from an old camera tripod which was great becasuse it allowed me to move the mount up and down easily as well as some tilt adjustments. It wasn't very solid though so once I knew what I needed I rebuilt it. This time I used 1/2 MDF that has a section of 2" * 2" lumbar glued and screwd to it. I then drilled out the three mounting holes for the bolts. With my setup I found that I had all the adjustment I needed as far as tilt goes by adjusting the front left and right screws up or down and since the 1HD has the wonderful lens shift feature moving the image left/right up/down was a snap. IMO lens shift should be included on ALL projectors. This is then glued and screwed to a floor joist which gives it a very secure hold. Unlike most of the DIY mounts you see online I decided to make my base plate a triangle shape which uncovers more of the vents as well as makes it very easy to get to the dust filter on my 1HD unit

Andrew,

Nice mount. I'll probably use your method when I get my projector. Rigth now I'm leaning toward the Z2 due to the lens shift. I want the projector as high as possible. Looks like the projector will be my next purchase instead of the 1098.
