The Blue Prints
Heres some of my "blue prints" and measurements I used while making the rack
20 mm chip board

Two 525 mm x 525 mm
Two 525 mm x 650 mm
This shows where to drill the holes for the aluminum rods in the back plate
TOP: Size of the hole for the 20x4 LCD

BOTTOM: This is the size and spacing of the holes for the switches and indicator lights
Placement of holes for:
LEFT: Handles
RIGHT: Holes for mounting the case in the rack they should be 18,3 inches or 464,82 mm apart (centre-to-centre distance )
I changed the design of the popular 20x4 LCD:
Replaced the Light POT with a diode and incorperated it and the contrast trim pot into the plug.
The rods I use
6 mm x 6 mm
Length: 227 mm/239 mm
they also have various
3 mm holes
Here are the drilled and threaded ends.
