We've constructed a mount out of strut. We just want to confirm that 10mm bolts from the strut into the threaded inserts where the leveling feet go are strong enough to support the unit. I have an NEC XG 110 LC.
I have an XG1100, with 3/8th" threaded rod between the projector and the unistrut. Forum member Chris Williams was in KC from Chicago and helped me out. He had constructed a number of these before. You may wish to send him a private message.
We didn't use the holes from the leveling feet. I believe I read previously that these were not designed to hold the weight of the projector.
The threaded feet will hold the projector no problem. I have hung many stackers (on top of each other) units this way with no problems what so ever.
They are designed to carry the weight of the projector two folds and then some.
Using the feet threads you need to keep the bottom plate flat, extra care needs to be taken so you dont 'flex' the projector chassis and unseat the boards. The mother board is bolted to the bottom plate. Use a double nut and fender washer to secure then measure. Doug
We use unistrut all the time w/ XG's. The difference is that we also use an XG mount, and run threaded ron from the mount to the "captiveP unistrut nuts. For drop of 8" or less 3/8" threaded rod, for 9" or more, 1/2" threaded rod. You get a bit more stability that way.
