    If you want to buy new or used and nobody on this forum comes up with anything for you to buy, try Ebay. I have bought a number of 19 inch rack panels and rails from sellers on Ebay without any problems. Also, if you want to buy new Middle Atlantic rack components, I suggest that you try Markertek. They sell on the Internet and discount Middle Atlantic products. They also sell their own rack components too. One word of advice, if you do buy rack components from sellers on Ebay, make sure that you are really saving some money over the established Internet outfits. I found that a lot of the Ebay sellers had low selling prices, but ripped buyers off with excessive shipping charges.

    Thomas,

    Thanks for the tips- I'm right with you 100%. Have bought several things on Ebay, but can't seem to find fair prices on 3 space shelves- the same 2-3 people sell them over and over new on ebay, and have the same prices (or higher) than most retailers (like markertek).

    Was hoping to find used deals, maybe find something at 75% of markertek new price.

    Was just hoping to find some HT folks who bought some items the didn't end up needing- or maybe have some rack shelves at work nobody needs. [​IMG]

    I'm looking too... and the best I can find for U2 shelves
    are $24 each or 4 for $89. I wonder what people do with the custom ones once they upgrade equipments... there should be a rsh4a trade board somewhere...

    Vince,
    I'll check my arsenal in the basement tonight. I think I have several vented panels and some rack screws. I'll let you know.

    I'm still looking. Any computer techs out there have a bunch of rack screws laying around? Any audio guys have some old shelves you don't use anymore?

    Email me!

    I have some rack screws I can spare and a couple spacer panels left over from my MA rack, Vince.
    Email me when you get a chance and we can work out some details.
    Try Smarthome's open box page, they have some good deals

    I"ve got tons of rack screws, but i fear they are the wrong size. They're from a bunch of Cisco boxes I mounted. The switches came with two sets of screws, and i only used the smaller ones.

    anyone know what the two sizes are? and which size Vince would need?
