Made this using a 4u rack shelf flipped upside down, and some 3mm thick aluminium plate. Total cost, approx £40-ish.
Saved me probably around £130 from my original idea to get the 35w rack kit and drill holes for the 25 chassis.

Sanded and filed, then drilled and tapped to take the facia from the headshell.

Nice job, I've got a spare Mark III I need to rackmount, where did you get the shelf unit? I've not been able to find much in the way of affordable ones.

This is the one:
https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/4u-19-Rack-C ... k:108:pf:0

It has a small lip at the front edge for strength, so you'll either need to cut a slot out of it as wide as the chassis, or make up 4 small spacers that the mounting bolts go through to bring the chassis down a bit. I did the latter using some offcuts of perspex I had lying around and that did the job perfectly.

If you're Uk based, I used these guys for the aluminium plate. They made up a custom cut order based on my sizes, which only cost about £7, and then all I had to do was cut out the section for the front of the chassis to go through and drill my holes.
