Deja-vu

August 12th, 2011 9 comments

Ok, here is the tools needed and assembly of the frame:

Preferably a quality socket 13mm ratchet driver (Craftsman):

A flat surface (Yes, there was a reason for the Faux Granite stoneware tile and the clean-up of  my workbench) Check!

The first two joined together!

It is a little harder than 80/20 Extrusions, because the bolts and nuts travel in a slot cut into the brackets(gussets).

OK! This is starting to look weird?! I think I’ve seen this before. Maybe its Deja-vu.

Does anyone recognize this? Anyone?

 

Of course there is a reason for all this! If I choose to get parts from JR, they will still be compatible.

As I don’t have access to a full machine shop, I prefer to keep everything store bought with minimal modification.

The dimensions are a little different, but the top build area should be easily adaptable.

It is a strange feeling to see this all done in about a half an hour (excluding the time to stop and take pictures). With any other frame I would have had to fit, mount and measure, and cut, and fit and measure and so on.

I have, on purpose,  extended the projector horizontal mount (X axis if you will) travel a lot. It can accommodate a wide range of projectors if I choose to change it at some point.
