    Default Old school projector

    These are about as handy as it gets for prop templating .

    I purchased two of em sight unseen for $80 and they both work perfectly .

    I took a couple of pc monitors apart and laid the lcd on top of mine
    made a great quality video projector for halloween i used them for 6 years changed to led projector 2 years ago
    not as good picture quality but more convenient.

    I was wonder what type/gauge wire you used for this? I have tried 9 gauge wire but cannot get it as straight and clean as you have yours, awesome job you have done.

    Hi Dave

    This has been a dream on the todo list for 10 yrs and wanted to give it my best effort .
    I used 1/2" flat stock steel for this as it is near 7' tall and will have a 30' length of lights on it for this year.
    For wire/metal gauge, I have selected 3 thicknesses of round stock steel to play with 3/16 , 1/4 and 5/16 .

    I believe wire is merely a loose term as these props require a rigid metal to support having the weight of lights
    or lights plus waterproofing materials attached to them .
