where are the best places to get 1RU rack cases?? I need to stuff my baby animal into its natural habitat. Im located in Melbourne Australia.
Do jaycar have these? Ive only ever seen the front panel in there.

Altronics have racks for $45 1ru and are aluminium so easy to drill and look smarter than the jaycar ones.

Altronics is definitely the go.
Jaycar went out of metal cases, and the plastic ones they got instead were hopeless. They now stock a hybrid with metal front and back plates, but they're still plastic which is transparent to RFI. I have found some fully metal 3U cases at Jaycar if you have a really big project ....
Most other cases manufacturers price for the IT industry. I've seen 1U priced at anything from $85 to double that.

aarrgghh!! i got a steel one from jaycar and it sucks. it has crap in the way of things.

but the good news is my second baby animal passed its voltage testing tonite!!! and in the next day or so i should have my 3rd one here ready yo be soldered!! these kits are a breeze and pleasure to put together.
oh i am addicted. cant wait to have 4 done and racked and then my evil plans for making some of those other pres begin!!
ps. the wife just laughs at me now.

I got one directly from Joe as part of a poweramp kit. It was simple to assemble and with Al front and back...simple to work with.

Yeah, avoid those jaycar cases. Trying to file around the extra bracing, just to fit your xlrs in, is a right pain in the arse!!
