What can I say? The title pretty much gave it away…

It’s an early Christmas Present…

Questions will be partially answered after 27th and fully after New Years!

VAT-Frame correction

November 29th, 2011 No comments

I have missed something during the VAT-Frame build. Someones sharp eye pointed it out.

Between the U shape profile VAT base and the L shape sides of the VAT frame there are small screws that protrude.


It is a set screw with a M4 collar. It is used to set the VAT to be parallel and at a specific start distance from the build base.

This is what it looks like only smaller:

The inside diameter is M4, but the screw itself is M2.5 thread. The bolt is 30mm x M2.5

Sorry! and Thanks for pointing that out.

Final VAT Tilt ( I promise…maybe ).

November 5th, 2011 No comments

As the title states I cannot promise, that I will not revisit this subject again and end up revising it.

I had made some test assembly until I was certain that it will fit and my measurements are correct.

BOM : look at link below:

This list has been published before.

So lets get on with the pictures:

This is how the finished assembly will look like! I know you have heard it before, but in this case it is true. These are shots of the springs:

Follow the pics of the tilt travel ( for now, I may rework that ):

From what you can see – Yes, there is only 5mm of travel. :-(

The image above is shot from below to see the positioning of the VAT relative to the projector.

See ya later ( in only a few moments )…
