Holding rack for external SSDs

June 13, 2022 — BarryK

This is an interesting experiment. I have a lot of USB SATA HDDs and SSDs. It wasn't a deliberate plan, things just evolved that way. I have external drives for particular purposes, for example, a drive for OpenEmbedded Dunfell compiles, revision-9, target x86_64 and aarch64 -- which needs a 1TB SSD.

So, have an awkward stack of SSDs and plugin whichever one want to use:


Awhile ago, wondered if this could be tidied up on the desk. Ordered this, a toast rack:

Arrived today. It is tiny, holds just four slices of toast, and does tidy-up the desk:


Nice, except the gap is only 14mm, and won't take some of the wider caddies. I have one SSD that is too wide, at about 15mm, and some HDDs that are about 18mm. Anyway, will use it.
