patch bay rack wha

I am thinking of expanding the patch bay to its own separate rack...Ive seen in pictures of other peoples setups sort of a rolling rack with the patchbays facing up....vertically not horizontally, if that makes sense....anyone know of anything like this on the market or am i going to have to build it

If you mean having the patch bay horizontal - bad idea! All the dust and dirt falls straight in onto the contacts.

oh that is a very good point.

but then why is it this way on consoles?

I wish you were near me and I would give you a perfect patchbay roll around rack.
You'd have to do a little sanding and add some casters but they are killer racks.

If you have any computer/electronic salvage business's in your area check them out, if you can find one half as good as mine and you don't mind the DYI aspect of it you may find something perfect.
