    I work the sheetmetal department at my work and I've been thinking about designing a custom rack for myself. So I thought I'd ask you guys for suggestions. I'm plan on making it about a 6-8 space rack with a drawer, fan, and power bar built in. Any Suggestions?

    I've got a 14 space (that's way too big to haul to shows) and I use it primarily to simply house all the junk I have. I've got a custom power supply built into the rear as well as a fan unit.

    I've also got a 2 space drawer that I simply couldn't do without. You may also wanna consider mounting a custom gooseneck lamp in the rear of the rack. Nothing worse than having to use a lighter at the gig right before the show starts to try and illuminate the back of the rack to make sure everything is plugged in correctly.
  3. They're both real, thankyou very much.
  4. Wow, I didn't know that you could get drawers, fans or power bars for your rack. How do they fit under your jacket?

    Sorry, I simply couldn't leave that comment alone. I know, I know, "immature." Psshh.

    I was so tempted to point out that Pam Andersens' rack has way more fans than the rest of her, and probably work in a pun about pictures of her wearing just her drawers, then it hit me just how desperately immature that would be. So I'll only be half as immature and point out that I resisted.

    I'm not sure how the power bars were going to get worked into it, though.
  10. I hate to kill the funny mood, but......

    It would be cool if you added an extra 1/2 rack space to each rack so you could have 1/4 of a space on both top and bottom for cooling. eg a 4.5 U rack, etc.
  11. Don't worry Alex, we can still read all sorts of innuendo into that.:D

    It's TB Law, just ask Latimour.
  15. Oh yeah, you were on hiatus.

    I got very badly sunburnt in January last year on my chest (I had one of those low cut top things on). For some reason I decided to post a photo up on TB; I think I was after medical advice, but instead I had everyone admiring my scaly chest. Bass players, honestly. I mean, there was no breast in there whatsoever. It was someone's avatar at one point, too.

    Some people.
  16. Where? Where is the breast?

    No pic? then I will just assume they are fake.
  17. Really? That sucks. So, uh, how are they doing? Why don't you take a pic and let us see.

    I had planned on putting extra space in between each rack for cooling but I hadn't thought of a lamp, that is genius.
