I’ve had mine for a little over 2 weeks now, and I’ve also knocked mine off the mount three times. Fortunately for me the HDMI cable caught it before hitting the ground but the last time damaged the HDMI cable and I had to buy a new one. At the moment I’ve shifted things around and it’s sitting on the cnc table using the built-in kickstand, but I plan to build a nice mount for it using the CNC. I wish I had seen your zip tie solution earlier. It would have been a great way to prevent it from falling. Certainly better than nothing.
I followed the advise of someone on the forums (can’t remember who) and used a camera extension arm and tablet holder. It works a lot better and I can position it in more places. That said, the way the arm connects to the 1/4-20 isn’t very secure, so it occasionally droops some, so I have it resting on the table top now. I will figure out a better attachment mechanism in the near future.
My display is pretty much an ornament. I cat5 to a laptop with an external 37" monitor as I had a spare. It’s very nice to have vcarve, the controller and the net on one display with total control. I just found the wifi inadequate. I say go big… or go small.
Oh, Nick! I am so doing this. Haven’t even installed mine yet but just holding it by the stand to figure out where on the face of my cabinet to position it , it popped off and fell to the floor. Did it again next time I tried. Was thinking I’m going to have to place my fatigue mat under it or there would be tears, then saw this. Thank you.
