    Default Needing custom T bar bracket

    I built my 50mW greenie 12k laser about a year ago and has had its fair share of use, even got some good comments at an 18th birthday party.

    However my problem is, there is no way I can mount the laser on my T bar with the rest of my equipment... even my cheap 5 maplin strobe has a bracket...

    Is there any way I can get one made? It would only require a strip of metal to be bent into the right shape and size. Also what other ways can I mount the bracket to the projector? It weighs a fair bit, but I built it to be compact and the internal components are about 1cm from the edge of the chassis as you can see below...

    Ok, that's the mount itself sorted but what about attaching it to the projector?

    As you can see the components are really close to the edge, way too close for the normal bolts. How else can I attach it?

    spend another 10 on a new case from maplin. build it so the apeture comes out the long way (so out the black lid)

    then you can mount the arm/bracket to the case, not the lid. so it will be stronger
