Custom 10 inch Rackmount Frame in Black

From time to time customers have special requests. The idea for this frame is to fit in a 10 inch server rack.

Just a quick post after such a long time, the business keeps me busy. If you know exactly that you are going to use just a few modules this frame will probably fit your needs. It just has 39HP usable width, and the outer dimensions are 254 x 133 x 30 mm. It will fit in this 10 inch rack.

Eurorack DIY Materials: Threads and Stripes, M3 Threaded Inserts in 104 and 126HP

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.

Custom Sized DIY Eurorack Frames

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

New Eurorack Frames for 1U + 3U = 4U

The new 4U frames are out now. The 4U frame is a combination for normal 3U Eurorack modules and 1U tiles. Here you can find the dimensions of the 1U tiles. The height of a 4U frame is 181 mm and is split in two rows, 3U – 133 mm and 1U – 48 mm. The usable inner size for the 1U frame is 28 mm.
The frames and side panels are available in anodised silver. The standard width of the frames will be 84, 104, 110, 126 and 168HP, but generally any size is possible on request.

Preview: Coming soon, 4U frames in flexible width, 3U + 1U for tiles

As I was asked several times if I could provide frames in 1U size, I decided to give it a thought. This is the first prototype.

The 4U frame is a combination for normal 3U Eurorack modules and 1U tiles. Here you can find the dimensions of the 1U tiles.
The dimensions of a 84HP 4U frame will be 433 x 181 x 30 mm (width x height x depth). The height is split in two rows, 3U – 133 mm and 1U – 48 mm. If you need a 7U frame you can easily combine a 4U and 3U frame.
For now the frames and side panels will be available only in silver anodised. It will still take some time to get the panels. I will keep you updated once the new frames and side panels are available.
