Do It Yourself Projector Mount

I just moved back in at Purdue and as I was unpacking I realized I no longer had a TV since my previous roomate (who had the TV) graduated. Thus I decided to use a projector that I had available. The problem here was there is no good place to put said projector so it will be out of the way and project a nice image on the wall. So last night we took a trip to the hardware store to cook up a mount to attach the projector to the loft. This is our story:

Materials Required:

  • 1 Projector needing a mount
  • 1 Wilton Vacuum Base Vice
  • 1 6×6 T-Strap
  • 3 Small Screws

The total cost of the materials was $41.47 (and we had some extra screws left over when we were done)

Tools Used:

  • 1 Drill (borrowed)
  • 1 Leatherman tool
  • 1 Pair of calipers

Steps to make the magic happen:

  1. Drill holes in T-Strap that match mount point
  2. Attach the T-Strap to the bottom of the vice
  3. Attach the mount to the projector
  4. Clamp mount and projector to loft
  5. ???
  6. Profit

And now for the results of all this effort:
