Re: Mounting hardware
I use an amp stand like this one:
to hold a 6 space Road Ready rack in front of me. Works great - the
faceplates of the rack units end up at exactly the right height and angle
see and even twiddle if I need to. The picture/description of that amp
stand don't tell you the whole story - you can flip the support bars around
so that the longer legs are the bottom and the shorter legs are the back.
Perfect for holding my rack box.
I can imagine that it would work well with multiple units as well. A
of these, each with 6-8 rack units on top, and you'd have a Star Trek
command center going!
Dunno if that helps - but I highly recommend giving it a shot.
