So I finally got my light hanging contraption pretty much done. I need to do more adjusting to the chains to get the light in the proper position that I need it to be. The black strings I'm using currently are temporary until I get more hardware to do it properly.
Now before you guys go telling that there would have been much better ways to do it then what I did. Which I understand and agree with you guys. But I wasn't allowed to drill holes into wall and I wanted to do my best to use supplies that I already had here at the house. As well as doing it quickly and easily. So here are some shots of setting it up...
The cast iron bars I got at Homedepot for 10$/ea
The hardware I got from my old man. The copper brackets or whatever you would called them are really meant to hold copper piping in place, but they worked really well for me here. I hammered them down a bit to fit around the cast iron bar more snugly.
Some quick measurements to make sure the 2x4s were the proper length.
Here is the best pictures I could get of how I attached it at the back of the tank.
Shot of inside the stand. As u can see I used the extra prong/leg on the cast iron bar to my advantage. I used shims and one of the copper brackets to secure it even more to the stand.
I spent 7$ on this hanging hardware at Homedepot.
So here are the pictures with the light hanging and the tank. Yes I know the light isn't hitting the tank properly right now, which I'm going to work on correcting during the next few days.
So there you have it. If you guys have any suggestions on how to set the light more properly above the tank so that the light is hitting the tank evenly please let me know it would be greatly appreciated.
