yeah, my basement needs a bit of attention.
I got the aluminum (for the brackets) for reeaaally cheap from a local steel shop that was looking to get rid of aluminum. I got the vector rails from Mouser as 60" rails. I built another case skeleton this size and a couple 6u 30hp little buddies.
I cut the plywood (which one of my housemates used as a cheap desk) to hold up the skeleton. I found that that the two pieces of plywood held the skeleton REALLY well, but just in case, I threw some plywood on the back to hold the busbars and make sure the thing didn’t give under the weight of the modules by and by.
I appreciate your optimism about my open back thoughts. Just looking to get my shit up and running asap! <3
