Extending the usual 84HP format, threaded inserts available in 104 and 126HP.
One of the main parts of my small business are the frames for Eurorack in different sizes. Since I started two years ago, I sold several 100 meters of frames including threaded inserts. At some point I started to hate cutting threaded insert on length to fit in a 104 or 126HP frame. I also didn’t like that the insert consisted of two different pieces. That’s over now.
After some research if found a supplier how delivers threaded inserts longer than the usual 84HP at a reasonable price. That’s why I am proud to introduce today, 104HP and 126HP M3 threaded inserts/strips for your Eurorack case.
It’s autumn, at least in the northern hemisphere. I notice a significant increase in orders. Looks like you spend more time indoors now, following your hobbies.
Quite frequently I am asked about frames in custom width. Of course everything is possible. Generally it will take a bit longer and might cost more in relation to the standard width (84, 104, 110, 126 and 168HP). This year I delivered frames between 46HP and 212HP, in both variants, silver and black anodised.
The IKEA Rast bedside table/nightstand is quite popular as a Eurorack housing. It perfectly fits a 6U frame with 94HP usable width. The size of the frame is 485 x 266 mm. Custom frames can be equipped with square sliding nuts or threaded inserts.
If you want to calculate your frame and the usable width, please take into account that the side panels are 3 mm thick each. Example calculation for the IKEA Rast frame:
485 mm – 6 mm (side panels) = 479 mm
479 mm / 5,08 (1HP) = 94,29 ≈ 94HP
