Monitor Arm

By a combination of luck and keeping a close eye on the reuse mailing list, I have acquired a pair of nice, large computer monitors: A 24" 1920 x 1200 SyncMaster 245BW and a 25" 1920 x 1080 HP 2509m.  Both screens were easily repaired by replacing dead capacitors on their power supply and inverter boards.  Due to the small size of the stock dorm room desks, the two monitors plus my laptop could not actually fit on my desk with space left for anything else, so I built a monitor arm that bolts to my loft out of some 80/20 extrusion.
