Reel to Reels look way cool in a Rack so on odd occasions I come across a unit that is going to be parted out, I have saved these rails till I had a few then have had some copies bent up to suit standard rack units.

These are the latest delivery but on these its not so straight forward, we have a standard rack here that fits all of our equipment but when we tried to put the A-3440 in it left only a few mm not enough to make a good angle, I know that Teac did a rack kit and it has a good 3cm on each side .
But that does not work in our rack, maybe people bought some rack panel rails and made a custom rack that would be the way to go if you want to keep the wood.
I have removed the wood from my machine here and unlike others manufacturers or the original Teac ones , I have made a full side so its very solid and fitted at 4 points not 2 , as its all metal it makes for a much better screening from buzz and hum.
My rack unit is slightly set back so I had to add some spacing washers, these are not included as I dont know what rack you might have, but included is 2 sets of bolts one for use without the wood panels one for with if that makes sense
These have been made for the A-3440 but I have a feeling they will fit the earlier A-3340S but not the non S version as the woodpanels seem the same, jury out on that for the moment till I get one in
More will follow but I try to find the originals to get the size just right, it maybe that some models fit others in the range, if you have any spare that I can copy let me know, if anyone knows the original designations from the manufacturers parts list that would be helpful
