Thanks for the suggestion James, I've grabbed 2 x 3 drive backplanes from
Ebay so far and would dearly love to keep the snipers (or are they snipes?)
away from the other ones I have bids on over the next couple of days. I
don't mind the effort of assembling these into a case of sorts, it's an
excuse for owning power tools!
PS. MrBill, can you please award James a gold star for his
suggestion? It's going to save me many, many dollars and rescue much
hardware as a result.
