Hi,

I would like to make a mount for my LCD monitor, since there aren't any mounts here.

I want the mount to go up and down, left and right, far and close.
It is easy to make one that moves on the x-axis or the y-axis, since gravity has nothing to do with it.

But if I want to make a similar one that also goes up and down (z-axis,) I won't be able to, because gravity will make the face of the monitor go all the way toward the ground. So, what can I do? How can I make it stop where I want it to stop?

You can see the monitor is easily moving up and down in this video: youtube .com/watch?v=KsJGOZT13LE (please remove the space) (00:20 to 00:25)

EDIT: someone suggested using springs, but I have no idea how that would happen! can you explain please? Or, if you have a better idea please suggest it.

I found what seems to be an easy and powerful solution.

Please take a look at this video: www.youtube.com/watch?v=XUuNbb2Bx4A (3:15 - 3:20)

You will see springs being used, but I don't know how they are exactly used. Any help is highly appreciated.

uhh, you don't need springs, just two arms, and two mounts, wall-monitor, and the arms need a bushing and a wing nut to lock down after you've adjusted position, if you wanted to you could add a slider
