Re: working with 2 post 42u rack

As others have already pointed out, 10-32 and 12-24 are the two most common mounting screws used in comm racks (but I have also run across some that used 1/4-20). One problem that I frequently ran into was that often a rack would be painted after the mounting holes had been tapped, and that would sometimes interfere with a first time mount using a given set of holes. I always kept a package of self tapping screws in each of those sizes for use in such a situation. The self tapping screws would easily clean out the baked on paint (and they also sometimes helped when I would have to mount something in an old rack that had mangled/cross threaded holes).
