Completely flush ceiling projector mount for under £10

Hi there,
I thought I would share my experience with you in the hopes that it helps someone.
I was looking for a flush mount option for my Epson EH-TW7300, and I struggled to find any, and the ones I could find looked very expensive for what they were.

In the end I did this.
Buy a 1m length of threaded bar (in my instance I need M4) some nuts and washers and some brackets.
Cut it into 4 to the length required. (this length will depend on your ceiling)
Insert these lengths into your projector, and lock in place with a washer and nut.

Drill holes in your ceiling that exactly match these holes.
I then used some plastic cable grommets to neaten these up.

Then above in the ceiling space attach a board to the joists using brackets, then drill this board through your ceiling holes.
Now, you need a willing volunteer to help you guide the threaded bars into the holes and then hold it in place while you secure the threaded bars in the ceiling space. Mine actually picked up one of the joists.

Job done!

Obviously there are no adjustments possible, so bare that in mind.

Thanks. I made sure they were plugged in before mounting.
If I were to do it again I would probably buy some extensions so I could access them from the loft without having to take the projector down.
The other option is to leave a bit more space between the projector and the wall, but I wanted it as close as possible to lessen its impact.
