    hello TB...

    guitar center is closed now, and I need rack screws for my 19 inch rack mountable equipment.

    what size are these screws?

    I have just gotten a Gator 6 space case for 30 bucks...( busted up a little but it works)

    so, what size screws do I go and get at Home depot? they are open till 10pm!

    Remember you'll need some plastic washers to protect the units front panels.

    Parts Express sells them and any good music store should, too.

    I had to use slightly longer rack screws for the top L & R holes on my LH1000. For some reason, the plate is beefier on the top. Just went to a hardware store with a rack-bolt from my SKB case.

    Hardware stores come in handy for stuff like that.

    Amazing... I had a whole container full of rack screws and I lost it.... but I need some more so I just bought them on EBAY for $4 delivered... like 25 screws and washers.

    I just have to wait for them to arrive.

    thanks and btw....the gk 700rbII kicked some major ass tonight at rehearsal...very very cool sound for the 80's hair band I am in....

    so, ya, the screws I actually got were 1/2 inch, but that is all they had, and they worked just the same.

    so glad I have a nice amp, 6 space rack case, and a power conditioner again! just need a 15 inch speaker for the bottom bottom end....hmmmm

    GAS is so much fun....isnt it!?

    Wow, I would never have thought to go there for hardware. I too needed rack screws recently and the first thought in my head was Hardware store, you know; screws, nuts, bolts etc. I pulled an existing screw and washer from the rack and took it to the hardware store. They matched them up perfectly, even the same color - Black...and petty darn cheap as I recall, I got a bag full for a few bucks.
