Vector Rails for DIY Case

Post by Mojoman » Fri Jun 13, 2008 1:28 pm

Hey guys,
What size screws are needed for the Vector rails?
Are these the same rails that are in the Synthbox Spacecase?

Thanks!

The thread is 4-40. And you probably want at least 5/16th of an inch long. unfortunately I do not know the size of the nuts (if you won't want to buy the Vector brand ones).

They are the same ones used in the SpaceCase, yes.

Hey Mojoman...

I've abandoned my DIY case project because I totally suck at actually making things and have decided to just shell out for the big Doepfer case.

If you are looking for vector rails (I have 8, which makes 4 rows of modules) I'd be happy to sell you them. I also will include all the nuts and screws (200+).
