Anyone know where to find these inside the US? I've looked far and wide and to no avail...

I wouldn't use something as potent as epoxy. What happens if you wish to change the boards. A normal standoff and double sided tape would be the ticket. At least then you can pry it off with a screwdriver without too much damage to the chassis.

Must the standoffs be self-adhesive? I generally avoid using these because over time the adhesive dries up. Also, these tend to be made of plastic and they become brittle with age and break. In either case the board might come loose.

I fully agree with amb. I bolt everything to a steel plate and use antishake washers on the bottom of all my cases.

That said there are times where thoes adhesive standoffs are a must. Like installing an XO-3 Clock into a cdplayer where mounting holes are few and far between.

Also, if you know any computer geek.. check with him. Some cases come with a few adhesive standoffs made of a softer rubber.
