    I knew it would happen.. I love this projector! It came today and of course there are none left from that seller. :( arrgh. It is available from other sellers at 100 dollars more.... but forget that.

    Good to know. Thanks for sharing all that info. Thanks also for the pics and for the receipt with the numbers on it. I will run there and see if i can get this... or something similar. If it means anything... I've heard you can buy "mosquito netting". Supposedly it is really dense. I'd love to try that also. Just a quick search and I found this: http://www.amazon.com/Coghlans-Mosquito-Net-Single-White/dp/B000KKB2OS/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1410400649&sr=8-1&keywords=mosquito+netting...

    Thanks for sharing the vids. Do you happen to have a link to purchase the gray mesh? I wouldn't mind giving that a try myself. Looks like a nice result.

    haha... I'm with ya. I ordered one after having two in my shopping cart. Removed one of the two until the 1st one shows up and it is "ok" then I'll order another. I wonder how many of them there are?? I'm gonna be mad when it shows up and it is AWESOME and then the remaining ones will be gone. :)

    To be honest, I hadn't really thought of it shining through. The window i'm projecting onto is a 1st floor window, but the bottom of the window is about 6 feet high as compared to ground level in the front yard. So I've never see anything shining through onto anything because there is nothing in line with it... as you said... similar to an upstairs window. I have been looking for "finer" mesh fabric to get an even better image (better resolution / more dots per inch) so to speak. And...

    Well... the one I used last year got trashed (long story) and I don't recall the exact model (I wish i did). But I know it was over 2000 lumens.it may have even been in the 2300 range. Now I am using this one which is only 1600 lumens and it definitely doesn't look as nice on the bridal veil stuff. It looks very good on the painters plastic though. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824116337 I'm again looking for that perfect combination... especially for the...

    Great news! So the 240 volt thing is of no concern it sounds like. Wow... for that price... I think I need to order one. :)

    5 mil painters plastic works really well also for rear projection. Ya know the stuff that you buy at the hardware to cover your furniture when you paint? And it is really cheap. I'm am looking for 3 mil to try but it's harder to find. I've also used really fine "bridal veil" fabric from the fabric store. You need a BRIGHT projector for this to look good with rear projection, but it looks amazing because you can see through it. For example... people outside the house can see both you...

    The description says 240 volt. Hope that doesn't mean it's a European model. They are not on 120 volt mains like we are here in the US. Thoughts?

    I've ordered some hot knives in hopes making this, among other tombstones. I'll hop back on this thread when I get it done to show how it turned out, probably in a month or so.
