    Hi All,

    First post as a member so hello to all!

    I am planning on setting up a projector in a darkened room to project onto a chimney breast. The only problem is being the projector im looking to buy Epson TW7200 lens shift is 47% and the only "resting" place for the projector that is acceptable to my girlfriend is around 60%.

    I'm therefore thinking of installing a shelf on a hinge that could pivot on a fixed radius (therefore eliminating any set up problems each time its in use), but can find any hinges that would work. Basically i need something like the below link, but where the mounting point is facing upwards to be able to hold a piece of ply that the projector would sit on.

    Does anyone have something similar or know what the name/shop i could buy a hinge like this would be?

    Thanks!

    Jonathan

    Welcome dudload,

    Strangely this does seem to be quite an elusive mount design.

    There are a couple of alternative options you have to trying to track down a specialist mount:

    You could use shelf brackets or similar 90 degree fixings that would attach to the vertical plate of the mount and allow the shelf to sit above or below the mount - probably better below aesthetically so that the projector sitting on the shelf would hide the mount plate.

    Also you could modify one of the standard mounts - it seems a lot of the mounts simply attach the mounting plate via a bolt. Instead of fixing it in the usual vertical position at the end of the arm it could be attached horizontally on top of the arm by drilling a hole through the arm (or using a U bracket around the arm.
