Looking for a less than full height rack. 22/24U should be fine, but also open to anything a bit bigger as long as it would fit through a standard doorway when on castors

Hey, have you listed a price, location and how much shipping would be to other parts of New Zealand? Also if you are asking for a PM make sure your Privacy settings allow your account to receive PM otherwise people can't contact you. Also note if you are selling something we ask you to offer to other members first. Links to private sales (including Trade Me posts) aren't accepted anymore and will be removed.

Could you could get a full height one and just cut it down?

I'm not sure, I guess it would depend on the rack and how it's put together.  Wouldnt work for anything with sidepanels/doors for a start which are definitely preferred.

Server racks are solid, usually a pain to cut.  Probably need a plasma torch to do it right.

Surplustronics and Jaycar sell half or 1/3 height racks, but it is expensive.  If depth is not too much of an issue, you can look at stage/studio sound gear racks (same 19" mounting, but not as deep).  If the depth is an issue, then you can use the hardware from a cheap second hand stage rack and e.g. build a nice stained timber cabinet.  Just some ideas, depends on what you want.




You can never have enough Volvos!

I want cheap so new is pretty much off the board. 

Something like one of these would have been perfect.
