Sorry for the OT post but I know a few round here are well informed

I'm just about to migrate a bunch of PCs to SATA from IDE as the
IDE drive caddies are failing  and I already have my server and
a few PCs using SATA, what I'm looking for is a drivebay /
backplane manufacturer that has 5, 4, 3 and 1 slot internal bays
available that use the *same* tray / housing / caddie.
The tray / housing / caddie doesn't have to be rugged  or cover
the whole drive, it would just be *really* convenient to be able to
move drives around at will.
My search (below) hasn't helped much, has anyone round here got any
sata "removable (disk | drive | harddrive) (caddy | bay | drawer |
tray)" single multi
 I think all ATA removable bays take a bunch of liberties with
the standard anyway and these were cheap and are old
 which I suppose by definition means it's not a caddie

Alternatively if you can think of a better forum for this post a
link would also be appreciated.
The folks on the Debian-ISP list probably deal with this type of
hardware quite a bit more than the average Debian home user on the
main user list?
