As I do not plan to build any more of the SDM Rev4 brackets, I have decided to share the schematic.

Hi schoondoggy! Would you please tell me what are the screws type required to mount this inside G8 and to mount 2xSDD on it?

The screws to mount drives on the bracket are countersunk M3x3mm. The screws that mount  the bracket in the case are 6-32 thumb screws.

Those holes are not used. I was going to mount another device there, but it did not workout. 

You need to open the file in Visio to see the scale of the drawing.

From the left edge of the bracket, those holes are 3/8" edge to center.

The minimum order for my sheet metal manufacturer is 100 units. I do not think there is enough demand for making another 100 units.

If you are interested, I do have one Rev3 bracket left. The Rev3 mounts drives the same as the Rev4 it just has different mounts for fans.

PM me through this site if you want it.

 

 

Is there any chance this is still available? Long shot I know, I only just came across this forum after having my gen8 over 3 years and starting to toy a little bit.
