Hey all,
I'm working on a wooden cabinet to mount some servers in and I was wondering If I could drill halfway down into the wood and if there was something I could glue into the wood that has a thread in it so I could screw standoffs in. Something like this where scraggly lines are the threads. Metal preferred.

Thanks :)

Ona

Edit:
Like this for standoffs :) (8mm long or less)

Possible to screw in from the other side? Thru-hole M6 stand offs might make the job easier (even standoff height).

Well its 16mm wood and I'm going to have things on the other side but if I have to thats what i'll do. I've found some round female standoffs and I'm thinking of jamming them in the wood but im not sure if I have the right thread and size and stuff. If there are any screw-happy people that can tell me if this is the right size id be very greatful.

Or you could drill the holes on the tight side ( sized to the standoff threads) and screw the stand offs themselves to the wood with a little glue or jb weld on the threads to hold them there.

The main idea was to be able to remove the standoffs when I change motherboards or If I use the cabinet for actual cabinet stuff like papers. If I had the metal thingys they'd sit flush and so I have my flat wood look back. I realised I'm looking for 16mm long (or very close to it) female/female standoffs that are rounded. Not sure what thread but if someone can confirm 4-40 thread that'd be great. Delta those look perfect if they didn't have the screw attached! :love: Thanks everyone so far! We are close haha

what is the thread size of a stand off? is it a standard

Tappex do all sorts of thread inserts, but can imagine they will charge you a fair bit and there will be a minimal order amount.

Here's there site just to give you ideas

If your talking about the little screw thing on the bottom you could always grind it off and mod it :)
But I'm not for sure what the material is like.

And I might try and get a dremmel on the weekend lol and see if it'd be suitable for the job. What do you mean by tapering it?

Standard, or at least what I find the most is M6-32 size and threading.

1' M6-32 rods for my motherboard stacking project.

Here is a good site to at least find out what you may need. I don;t think they sell to Australia, but you can at least get the name of the product and look locally.

Also for the size that you need the thread isn't that big of a deal as long as its the same to what ever your fastening it to. So I would just measure how big the whole is for the motherboard screw and then find something that is close to #4-40 or M3 thread.

It's always fun to help that's why we are all here.
Sounds fun:)
If you want you can always take one motherboard screw and standoff with you if you have any to the hardware store and they maybe able to measure them and get you the exact size of stuff you want.

Probably not a bad idea, otherwise I'll just get the 4-40 considering other people use it and haven't complained ;) Anyone from the Usa land interested in making 10 or so dollars pm me and I'll let you know if I need ya ;) :)

IF you have semi-decent wood, no "insert" is required, although it might be an idea to drill directly through the wood and then solder a wire to one of the posts, and then to ground, as I have. It's just a matter of using hte proper bit ot drill your hole, perfectly matched to the mount's inner post, and not the threads themselves. I've got the G.Sniper M3 in my "testbench" right now, waiting to get installed into my testing case, so tomorrow i can start working on the review.

Use this hardware jizzler suggested but don't go all the way through the wood with the hole, Drill in deep enough to allow the standoff to sit at about standard standoff height (or a bit higher). You would then mount the standoffs onto the board and set it down nice and snug into the drilled holes ;)

Second option: Scavenge and cutout a mobo tray out of an old case. Drill a hole in each corner and mount it to the wood (use a smaller spacer if you need to).... then you can use the threaded holes already setup for you from the old tray.
