That's right, I do remember that I couldn't get to the screw holes on the 
inner edge of each of the drives, but ISTR that each drive sat on kind of 
a shelf, so I don't remember feeling uncomfortable about screws only on 
the outside edge.

There also may have been more than one style of cage inside the same case.

Anyway, still a useful thing if you want to have a few spindles to do 
something with.
