    Default Rack mount project case

    I have been searching for a while for some different rack mount project cases.

    I keep seeing the same one or two which will not work. I know there have to be many more options out there but I cannot find them. Anyone know of a supplier for a project case? I need a 2U rack mount case with a depth of 13-15".

    I've seen people using an Antec rack mountable case. IDK where to find one though.

    I need something that is a blank box with no cutouts or PSU openings. Not a computer case at all. This used to be easy to find, but now I am only finding one or two options...

    I am going to check Weirdstuff, but I have to have a constant supply of these cases in the event the customer wants to use them again. I am working with my sheet metal guy now to create a custom chassis, just in case I can't find what I need.

    I would love to share details of the build, but I have to keep it quiet for now.

    Basically I need to put some HDMI converters and USB IR transmitters inside a case to hide what the customer is doing with them. They don't want their customer knowing the details...

    Sorry, i misread it. i thought you were looking for a case to mount rack mount stuff in.

    I'll be more careful in the future.

    lol!


    Did I come off as harsh? Sorry if I did. Battling some neck and spine issues at the moment so I can be short.

    I know it's an odd request and I hope to be able to post my build log.

    I've got a 3/4U rackmount case collecting dust. Shipping'll be a bit of a nightmare, though.
    Two years. They were great. Let's make the next ones even better!
