You're probably right about the weight, but I've not
tried to weigh one empty. The ones that are located
where I could weigh them have all of the power
rectifiers and other stuff in them. These do have
most of the foam on the sides, some of it was removed
to make room for PC odds and ends it looks like.

I've been thinking about moving one into the office to
replace this short radio base station rack (which is
unfortunately not 19 inch standard), but have so far

Another note - if you're in North Carolina in
Raliegh/RTP or from there to Wilmington NC, I can
deliver this stuff to you - I travel that way
relatively often.
