    That looks nice and close to the ceiling - how did you mount it?

    I'm thinking of moving mine close to the ceiling, but still keeping some adjustment, so I'd be interested in your method before making mine.

    Cheers.

    Gary.

    Alright chaps, it actually came with the projector when I bought it off the classifieds from Bert Coules. It is simple but very effective, it uses a wooden plate (with holes drilled that align with the projector screw holes) with a ball and foot mechanism to allow it to be tilted etc. I think there is some threads showing the basics if I remember right. Guess I owe him a big one as I haven't a clue about DIY. It has two main screws which go into the ceiling and seems sturdy enough.

    Indeed it would!

    LMP make some good value brackets though (find them on this forum), and they work very well by all acounts. They're considerably cheaper than most of the manufacturers brackets.
