  1. i'm starting a [small] custom studio furniture business, and i'm at a loss as to where to find (or even HOW to find) wholesale rails for rack mount units.

    anyone got a clue?

    There's also Markertek, an audio video supply company. Be forewarned these drilled bent pieces of sheet metal are hideously overpriced, like everything in the rackmount business.

  4. Not sure if your US dollar will give you any better value, but I have purchased a lot of stuff from Trans Canada Hardware (www.tchweb.com). They also carry tons of other kinds of hardware such as rack shelves, drawers, blank and vented panels, fans. You name it.
