so we have a new projector to attach to the café ceiling.
does anyone know where the cradle from the older projector went? it's not in the action room or admin office w/ the old projector. i didn't have time to trawl through the workshop though but i'm not back in edinburgh until thursday. nix says he has looked everywhere though.. there is a cadle in the action room, but none of our projectors fit in it.
does anyone know who took it down? iirc i was away at the time so am unsure.
elodie and I tested the old projector. it seemed to work fine, though it was only on for just over a couple of hours as i had to go. it could still have the intermittant overheating issue and thus on the way out and not worth bothering with, but more through testing will have to be done. the main cause of overheading is a clogged air filter though nix cleaned the insides
and i'm sure he'd have done the filter at the same time. i've heard it might have been the positioning in the cradle and potential lack of ventilation flow, but it was working for so long anyway.. not that we can check this without the old cradle.. (i also heard that one of the mirrors inside had cracked but this doesn't seem to be the case..)
so, bottom line, we need a new cradle. this'll either have to be built or purchased. does anyone know how it previously attached to the ceiling? was it bespoke hackery?
