      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.

      This one: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...&pf_rd_t=101&pf_rd_p=470938731&pf_rd_i=507846 is easy to make, since gravity has nothing to do with it.

      But if I want to make a similar one that also goes up and down, I won't be able to simply copy the way it moves left and right, 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: KsJGOZT13LE (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: 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.

      A good idea has come to my mind. I can find used office chairs (which have adjustable heights) and take the gas spring used (I think they are gas springs, whatever they are they do the job.)

      The question is, they are very strong! It will be hard for me to pull them down (compress them,) so is there a way to lower their strength? (maybe lowering the amount of gas will do it. But how?)
