Just picked up this Lowell rack of Craigslist for $100. Extremely psyched considering I was going to buy a rack half this size for about $700. They also sold me a network switch and a SurgeX SX 1115-RT surge protector/power conditioner for $125.

LOL! Great find - geez, you've probably got close to $100 in blank plates (MSRP) there! The rack was just thrown in...
Yea, I'd love to get DIY instructions considering I have a CNC router. I don't suppose Panamorph would give me the vector fileOh, you're going to like that Panamorph unit! Note that you'll need a mounting plate specific to your projector, or you'll need to DIY something. The plates are not cheap, but don't have any of the DIY issues with flex or requiring additional support, etc.
Awesome! I got a similar deal from AVScience on a re-badged UH480 that also came with the sled and *a* mounting plate. But the plate that came with it was specific to a projector, and I had to buy the 'correct' plate anyway. Just be prepared for that (don't know what plate you got, and didn't look back to see if you've got a projector already). Those plates are obviously low volume, specialty items and priced, um, accordingly...Christmas came early...just picked up the Panamorph UH480 lens from Fedex after officially stealing it off ebay. Very sketchy process (came from Australia...had to fill out forms, make statemets, etc) and wasn't comfortable at all, but alas, it is here.
Brand new in original packaging. The best part is the box also contained the mounting plate, the Chief mount & a motorized sled. All for $3000 American.
