another simple LCD mount

Postby Rando » Tue Nov 21, 2017 10:03 pm

All:

In my CNC area, I like to have a "mirrored" second LCD screen, with a built-in touch sensing, right over near the CNC machine. And, in addition to various engineering, I also do a lot of "technical photography". Basically, people won't sit still long enough, so I'm relegated to taking pictures of "stuff".

In both those cases, I needed a very simple mount plate to convert from the LCD's VESA-75 (75mm square) mount hole pattern, to the kind of "mounting plate" that I use with my tripods, cameras and other grip equipment. I use the Manfrotto RC-4 plate, which isn't special among mount plates, it's just what I use.

In any event, it took all of about 1/2 an hour from the initial sketch being done to starting cutting the two VERY SIMPLE aluminum plates. It's just a piece of 4" wide x 1/8" thick 6061 aluminum extruded bar. Luckily, the bowing of the bar wasn't too bad in this case.

The "excess" holes in the plate are to allow three different vertical-adjustment locations. The system is still a bit under construction, which is why there's a tool-cart and other things about and around. When I need to stand and do some typing, I typically use the larger screen against the wall. But, when doing things like touch-off, I like having a touch-screen right there close-at-hand.

Regards,

Thom
