I'm in need of three 2-post rack shelves--17.5" wide, 13" deep, flush mounted.  Can anyone recommend a place I can find these used?  Or inexpensively?

    Thank you--I've done Craig's list in my area (Maryland), ebay and google.  I'm sorry--I should have clarified.

    What you've specified is called a Relay Rack.

    Most Cisco components have holes near the center on their sides to mount their brackets, but many items with attached flanges on the front edge won't mount securely in that type of rack without a shelf to support the weight in the rear, plus the rack would need to be bolted down, and braced at the top, to 'flush mount' like you're talking about. So do consider 4-post relay racks, too.


    Cheapest 'new' I found with a quick search -
    That's 42 units... you didn't specify a height.

    Watch for surplus sales/auctions at nearby universities and colleges... the last one I went to at the local community college had 2 enclosed 4-post 42U racks with doors front and rear for $20 each.
