Definitely square-holed racks are nice. And our servers had rails that
just snapped in with no screws at all. But even with my cnc plasma
table I don't think I could cheaply and effectively make a homemade rack
with square holes especially with standard mild steel 1/8" angle stock.
Maybe if I had a nice punch and dye I could do it easily enough, using
thinner stainless steel stock or something. Food for thought...
