I have a cheap security DVR in my middle atlantic rack without a proper sized face plate. Since it is cheap I don't feel like sending it in to Middle Atlantic to be measured and was wondering if anybody knew a good way to find a different component with these dimensions that MA might already have a face plate for. The DVR is 12.5" wide x 2.5" tall. I realize if I can find on it won't look perfect but it will look better than the way it currently does (open face). If anybody knows of a device or a good way to figure this out I'd appreciate it.

Local place might cut up a blank plate for you - metal CNC/laser cutting/fabrication shop. I'll ask a buddy in Chicago for a rec.

If you call Middle Atlantic, they will send you a form which you can fill out and send to them and they will make a plate to the dimensions that you write down. They take no liability at all if you mess it up, but they will do this.

I have done this in the past with a Gefen piece I needed done and they did a very good job. They don't round corners or anything like that, but they got the height, width, and offset correct.

TonyNo from Cocoontech.com forums suggests Westmont Metal Manufacturing http://www.westmontmetal.com/, for a local shop to try.

I'm not a dealer, do you know if they will do this for general customers?

If they won't talk to you, shoot me a message and I will get you the form.
