Cherry Hills,

Can you give me some advice as to how you made your "purpose-made mounting platform" that attaches to the ladder?
Thank you.

It's a piece of 3/4" plywood, with holes drilled to match the mounting screw locations on the bottom of the projector. It's elevated above the ladder top by four pieces of 3/4" aluminum angle. The two pieces at the back are just screwed into the sides of the ladder. The front two pieces have slots which allow them to slide up and down to adjust the projector angle. The attachments are made with screws that stick out (heads on the inside of the legs) and thumbscrew nuts that allow easy loosening/tightening. The aluminum parts are pop-riveted together, and wood screws attach them to the sides of the plywood piece.

I don't have a plan. It was all done ad hoc, as I had to experiment with where the screws would be located, how long to make the slots, etc. I knew about how high the projector would have to be, then started working from there. You'll just have to wing it in figuring out the rest, depending on how high your ladder is, how high your screen is, how far above/below the screen edge your projector needs to be, etc.

Did that help?

Yes, it did help. It's a little out of my skill range however. Maybe I can find a friend who can help make something similar.
Thank you so much for your quick replay.
