Looking for PDP-11/44XA rack advice

  Hi Jay. I have done this two ways -

 One is to just drill four 1/4" holes thru convenient adjacent hardware
and bolt the cabs together.

 Another way is to find (or make) 'mending plates' that are spaced to fit
the inside rack mounting holes (which on my cabinets were drilled and
tapped 10-32) with holes drilled to match the rack hole pattern, and sized
to *pass* a 10-32 screw. These mending plates are placed so as to join
the inside rails of the racks together, front and back. I used four and
it made a combination that I could have supported my car on... eight
casters, etc.

  Unfortunately, I turned my back for a second, and all that stuff ended
up in Munich - or I'd take pix.
