are not standard width, when I was unable
to place a new IO chassis into the racks
  
  2952   Wed May 19 16:00:18 2010 JenneUpdateIOOHooray! We locked the MC! (and some other stuff)[Jenne, Kevin]
We opened up the MC chambers again,
and successfully got the MC locked today!

we might use for the phase camera measurement.
