Having things made is painful, but I've got a drill.  Several drills,
actually.  Besides, I could buy a heavy-duty drill press for what I'd
save on any significant number of nodes.

So, how do I go about making a 1U enclosure out of a OTS case?  Do you
have any specific cases that you care to recommend that fit (even
approximately) the size spec?  Did you do this yourself?  Do you have
some (or can you prepare some) GIFs or JPEGs of the process or finished

Seriously, this would make a great chapter for the online beowulf
engineering book I'm working on.  Send me the stuff, I'll organize it
and put it in a chapter...
