Step 5:

The half-adapters were a push fit and just needed to be screwed home with a little help from some superglue to firm things up.  I drilled holes at 20mm intervals to space the sockets out a little (some pendrives/dongles can be quite big.)  A couple of extra holes were added each end for mounting.
I have 10 flash drives. 5 are lost somewhere in my room.
That's really cool and ingenious :)
Might be cool - but I have to admit kind of obvious. I had a few A to A adapters going spare, and a lot of pen drives lying around. Just a flash of inspiration - doesn't happen too often at my age, unfortunately. And impossible without that one great human resource - the odds&sods box!
What a cool Idea for pen drive lovers :).
Why would you have so many pen drives in the first place? I usually try to consolidate the data/bootable versions to only three or four at the most. Did you toss out all of the protective caps for when you really want to pack them on the road?
It is a bit out of control isn't it? What is worse is I was reading today that a USB connector only has a limited number of connect, disconnects it can put up with, so this rack storage system effectively cuts the lifespan of the devices in half. At least they can spread their wear out over a number of devices though.
Diffrent folks, diffrent strokes mate.
