The Rack

I picked this rack up about 6 years ago from local online classifieds. It was about 30mins away from me, so I sent a buddy of mine with a trailer to go get it for me. Cost me $85. It’s been sitting in a corner of my garage waiting for me to find a use for it. I knew I eventually would… but I’ll admit it took me longer than I expected. It’s dusty and full of cobwebs and dirt, so first I’ll need to clean it up.

It has handles on the sides, casters, and rails that have the holes cut directly into them instead of requiring cage nuts. It’s actually an audio equipment rack. I may have to swap out the rails, after I get it cleaned up I’ll dig into that a bit.

When I bought it, it had a monitor mount clamped to a 2″ hole in the top, near the backside. Now, I wish I would have saved the mounting hardware for that, but It doesn’t look like I did. You can see the arm at the top of the rack in the picture on the left.

The power cable, plug, and PSU are a partial custom job, that I might reuse. I plan to attempt to keep the portability of the rack intact, so I like the power cord being removable. The cord has a locking end on it, on the rack side, and a standard 120v outlet on the wall side. I’m not sure how I feel about the PSU, it feels empty. I have some battery backups being delivered and I’m not sure how I feel about their power running through this, debating if I’m going to use it.
