[IC] Euro rack blanks

Post by julian » Wed Apr 04, 2018 7:43 am

I often see posts asking about tolerance, and the problems with getting metal cut-to-size at retailers for DIY euro blanks, so i am wondering if there would be any interest in me cutting some for people?

If i were to do this, the parts would be the correct size (my equipment is capable of cutting to a way smaller tolerance values than most!) but i am wondering if there would be interest.

I can think of two options -

Blank panels in 2.0mm natural anodised aluminium, no holes (ie no mounting holes)
or -
Blank panels in 2.0mm natural anodised aluminium, with circular mounting holes

The first option is one less process here, and im sure i could be more competitive with it.

I have no costing to show you yet - really this is just an interest check to see what option, if either, would be of interest. What i will say is that everything i produce is competativly priced, so, obviously, if this was to go ahead, the intention would be to follow this trend*.

*please bare in mind though that precision does cost money. i will never be able to match a local shop cutting non-anodised sheet with a +/- 2mm tolerance, so my work / pricing should never be compared to this kind of enterprise.

Yes I'm interested. Holes or no holes. I have a drill I'm willing to use.
