FYI: My 1.0M CM takes round struts and this CM-B1 LNB holder ($16.99) from prosat looks like a good fit:

Hey Iceman,
Here is the pic of the one I made.
Like I had mentioned, I chose the square tubing over the round.
Mine has a length of 40.5 inches:)

I had one of these CM-B1 LNB holders on 1 meter CM Primestar dish. They are about the correct diameter for a newer KU linear LNBF. However in my experience this mount puts the LNBF just a little too far away from the dish. The original Primestar LNBF had a longer feedhorn opening than the new LNBF. Measuring from the front face of the LNBF to the center of the dish, the Primestar LNBF was about 28 inches away, and the new LNBF was almost 29 inches away. It will work at 29 inches, but it works much better at 28 inches. I ended up fabricating my own mount out of aluminum flatbar, but I was making a multiple LNBF setup at the time. I think you may shorten the arms a bit or maybe your LNBF will be able to slide ahead some.

I attached a pic of the original LNBF on that mount. The picture made me laugh, this was my first FTA dish. I used to change satellites by pushing this thing around on my front porch.

nothing wrong with ghetto moving a dish. I do that with my 6 foot C-Band dish :)

I guess ghetto moving is OK, it's more the way that think looked that was silly. Two tire rims welded together and a rusty piece of exhaust pipe for a stand sitting right there by the front door. No wonder my wife hated that thing, but I absolutely loved it, especially on Sundays with all the Fox stations that we used to have. The 2 dishes that I have now are in the back yard where they are difficult for the neighbors to see. I did motorize the primestar dish, but after getting the 8 footer I didn't really need the Primestar anymore. I gave it to someone who is disabled and can't afford cable, now he's hooked on FTA too.

That dish looks like my 1 meter Prodelin. Here are some pics of the lnb bracket and such.

The dish came with a manual: 4096-433 Assembly Manual for Small Aperture Ku-Band Rx/O Antenna System, Rev B. 1997. I think that's the part number for the small aperture mount for the 0.6 through 1.0 meter dishes...

Part numbers for the bracket are:
4080-060 Top Feed Clamp
4080-059 Feed Mounting Bracket

FWIW.

If that plastic bracket doesn't work out you might get this prime focus adapter from Sadoun, stick it in a vise, bend it as necessary, and drill a couple of 1/4" holes for the arms if necessary. YMMV

EDIT: BTW, the feed mouth is about 27" - 27.5" from the face of the dish as measured from a point halfway between the side arm mounting points...

Would you be interested in selling the bracket?

Thanks!
