Cheap Patch Panels


[link to this post]
 
48 port patch panels for £7.50! http://www.screwfix.com/p/philex-angled-patch-panel-...

And a Router for £9.99 http://www.screwfix.com/p/300mbps-wireless-n-firewal...

I would not say either are "best of type" however at those prices someone might find them useful.



And I I no connection with them and don't benefit if you buy one either!

Must be a pricing error, should 79.99 and 59.99 frown

I made mine out of melamine faced chipboard with standard runners fixed vertically.

Works fine and doesn't look at all bad fixed to the wall in the garage.

I will see but it is dead easy.

Two sides, top and bottom pieces. Fix together with plastic furniture blocks with a gap of standard rack with taking account the size of the runners which can be sourced at multiple cheap places http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/19-INCH-RACK-RAIL-STRIPS-P...

Cut a suitable hole in top, bottom or side for cable entry, fix 90 degree corner blocks to fix to wall and job's done.

Much easier than I expected. About a day to make and fix the rack and then a long time to run cables fix boxes for multiple connections etc but not it is finished it's is "easy".
