Sorry, I confused things. What I meant by "standard rack rails" was the standard
MOTM rails (MOTM-19A). When Paul sent out the measurements before, he indicated
that they would be the same width and guage. I can use them to check that I have
enough of a "lip" on the top and bottom of the cabinet and that I have set the lip
back far enough. The bend in the 19A rails does cause a bit of a problem but I can
turn it over just for testing. Of course, having the real flat rails would make
this a lot easier ;)
