In wall rack mount... Help deciding!

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hello all!!!

I need help deciding on what rack to go with. I see most of yours, but many of you have alot more equipment than I do. I will have 6 spaces total. Would I be better off just building my own from lumber? Using sanded plywood, covering it, etc... Or buying a rack. I don't understand if half of these racks from MA come with shelf's? Or is that someting I have to buy extra.

Please help me to pick one out. I need 6 shelfs. 2 atleast 6-8 inches tall. The rest do not have to be more than 4-5 inches tall.

Any help is great, which shelfs to use with what rack, and where to buy...

Thanks in advance!!

Dustin

MA racks don't come with shelves unless you score one on craigslist w/shelves. The shelves are pricey, too.

In Rack terms every thing is measured in spaces or "U"s. A space is 1.75" high. I forget the exact width approximately 19". Maybe exactly. So for your 6-8" ones you'd need 4U or 5U shelves. For the others 3U, maybe 2U.

The racks can be pricey too. One option is to just do rack rails (~$50, shelves extra). I did this in my old build, the rails are described as rear rails, and labeled RR and then a number of spaces. RR42 or RR35 are common. I think mine was 35. You can see pics here:

MA style racks tend to cost more than DIY, but there is a coolness to them.
