The quality of the Maplin rack does appear to be questionable. A customer review on the product page states: "The quality is not good at all. Paint was missing where they had overtightened screws. The front panel was not anodised, it was just painted (badly). The bottom was not perforated as adverstised, and it was not a flat pack".

See: Standard Rack Mounting Instrument Cases : Rack Mounting Cases : Maplin

Regards,
Steve

Yeh I did see that but at that price it is worth a go even if I repaint it.
