switching from rails to racks
I hate rails. I hate looking for the right-sized screws; I hate
trying to match rail bits to one another; I hate having oily hands;
I hate trying to get rails mounted at just the right width so the
machine will slide in but not smash onto the floor. Furthermore, I
think it is silly for us to be mounting all of our hardware on rails
(to save space) when we can't maximize rack capacity anyway.
I vote we move to shelves (not that we actually *move* existing
hardware, but that we start using shelves and stop ordering rails):
willie and I did some research and this looks to be the cheapest
sturdy-looking shelf we could find. I suspect it will only fit in
the square-hole 4-post racks, though. I'm ordering one to check it
out. Anyone else interested? Anyone want me to get a few extra so
they also can "check" and "out?"
lovingly and sincerely,
