Well, here we are... You like?
DOH! Forgot to change that second picture.
I'll add a link here to your original thread . . . *bites tongue* . . . as the in-editable-initial-post "feature" won't allow you to . . .
. . . beautiful work on that PoleLamp'Book® hack!
what size of screen is that :?
It's a 20.1" Dell 2001fp. Makes my poor 17" seem small.
I would not have drilled holes in my floor and ceiling for such an unreliable machine.
It looks like you already disable your internal display
How did you do that?
Could you teach us how to disable the internal display??
Mmmmmmm. Thats a rather sexy looking mod...
How did you mount the LCD? How much does it weigh? (Approximately)
The Dell 2001fp has the advantage of a VESA compliant mount. In the back of the monitor, you'll find a 4.75" square "cutout" in the plastic. This is what the standard desk stand clips in to. From a local metal supplier, I bought a 3/16" thick x 4.75" square aluminum plate. Drilled holes in it with a Dewalt. I screwed the plate to the 80/20 structural framing, then I screwed the monitor to the plate.
The whole setup probably weighs in the ballpark of 75-85 pounds. The monitor itself weighs about 20.
Nice, how much did that cost you?!
