Hi!, one of my friends said you are the best.

I'm trying to find a ceiling bracket for projector to project vertically.

I'll explain, I need to project on my pool table. I have a BenQ MW817ST.
If I want to put it right in the middle of the table, so we don't hit it with the pool sticks,
it need to have an angle of 20 degrees approximately.

It's also would be nice to be able to easily move it to shoot at the wall.

So it would need to be able to shoot straight down from the ceiling.
and be able to swing it from almost 90 degrees _| to 20 degrees on the other side.

I also need to be able to buy it/ship in Canada.

Thanks!

Straight out of the owner's manual:
15. Always place the projector on a level,
horizontal surface during operation.
- Do not use if tilted
at an angle of more
than 10 degrees left to right, nor at
angle of more than 15 degrees front to
back. Using the projector when it is not
fully horizontal may cause a malfunction
of, or damage to, the lamp.
Proceed at your own risk.

I checked them, but most of the time it says 15 degrees tilt.

Mount-It! Universal Projector Wall Mount with Extendable Arm
by Mount-It!

Tilt: +/- 30 degrees, but I'm not sure if its not 15 on each side, I can't see it on the image.

I would need at least 30 degrees to be sure, but I wouldn't be able to use it on the wall.

For the moment :

If I put it to 70 degrees, it should work.

I'll continue my search, ty!

I think you misunderstand what I was suggesting. I am not recommending this one in particular, since I have never seen it. I am using it as an example of a wall mount:

Take the portion on the top left that looks like a V. It is designed to mount on the wall. If you mount that on the ceiling instead, the projector will be rotated 90 degrees and will point straight down. Tilt is irrelevant because it is already pointing down.

But he said he wants to be able to tilt it up to within 20 degrees of horizontal at other times, so he does need a mount that will swing at least 70 degrees. He doesn't seem to care that the projector will burn up due to incorrect airflow and heat buildup of the lamp into the electronics section.

I missed that. There were others in that list that showed a 360 degree roll capability. It doesn't have to be tilted on the X axis, and a y axis tilt can accomplish what he wants.. Thinking outside the box.

I can solve this problem by changing and adding airflow in the projector.
