Is there an easy way to power two Moog Eurorack cases with one Eurorack power module?

I'm looking for an easy DIY way to power two Moog Eurorack cases with one Eurorack power module in the first case, such as the Endopin.es P module, or a 4MS Row Power module i.e. by putting/drilling holes in the backs of the cases and feeding some sort of a power cable to a second flying bus cable in the second case. If so then what sort of connectors and cables would I use? Someone told me that messing with Eurorack power supplies can be somewhat dangerous, so I don't want any Heath Robinson style solutions.

Hello,
This is probably a question for the folks at Modwiggler, the premier site for modular synthesizer enthusiasts.

I think I hear the mothership coming.

That's very interesting, in the US we call it a Rube Goldberg device. Every country has it's own creation myths. Even stuff like this. Very enlightening!

They're starting to look like proper modulars.
