SCSI Rack: Introducing Contraption 2000™





I wanted to share a current project for people out there that cannot afford a USD1000 SCSI rack. This is the Contraption2000™ - made with some help from the peeps at Wizardry and Steamworks, to not be confused with the SwordMaster™ which is from a different cartoon.

It is made by dismantling an old computer-case, grabbing the 5.12" cage and then turning it upside down to place it over the power-supply. You lose one loading-bay since it is sacrificed to make the cage sit on top of the power-supply. The cage was fixed onto the power-supply by drilling holes in the power-supply and then using standard computer-case screws.

Here is an overview diagram:
Code:


                                +-------------- Metal 5.12" Cage
                                |
                  ^   +---------*--------+
                  |   |               *--------
   Cage is Turned |   |-                -|
    Upside-Down   |   |               *-------- 5.12" Loading Bays
                  v   |-                -|
                      |               *--------
                      |-+--------------+-|
                      | | +----+       | *-------- Sacrificed 5.12" Loading Bay
                      | | |    |  +--+ | |           Drill Hole For Fastening
                   ---+ | |    |  |  | | +---
                        | +----+  +--+ |
                        |            *------- Power Supply
                        +--------------+
Now to get some SCSI cables and drives. I just have a CD-ROM in it and I've placed my blank CDs in the cage... Looking forward to some internal SCSI drives. It has three bays - probably could extend it by attaching another cage on top.
