    I remember seeing a post about how to make you own ceiling mount for a front projector. I have diligently searched this site and the avsforum but must be doing it wrong because i can't find it. can anyone help?

    thanks,
    diana

    For a CRT or digital?

    Putting 200+ pounds on your ceiling requires a bit more structural integrity for which unistrut, all-thread, and C-section steel work well.

    Thanks a lot all. I knew I could count on ya. It is a digital projector. I am sure this is a stupid question but when you mount the projector upside down, it must be able to flip the image right . . .
