Just being nosey, what's the machine for, why the unusual storage?

Then use that cage (all 6 drives with both sides mounted) and mount that to one side of the 5.25" drive bay. You can find a space (metal tube) and a long screw to extend a bar across to the other side of the 5.25" drive bay if you want more support.
Mine is just like the U braket but its 2 individual sides which means you dont have to bend the metal at exact measurments nor would u have to use a drill press and you can drill both sides at one time to get the hole placement correct.

just drill holes on one side of the larger drive bay and screw each drive in on one side only. if you are worried, you can use my spacer idea to space each out to the other side or, get a strip (with holes in it already) and use it to line up the drive mounts on the other side.
