Just getting into wood working so, sorry if i use the wrong terms. My dad was asking about these drawer mounts for a desk he has but we have been unable to find them. Does anyone know where you can get drawer slides like the ones in this video that have the rear bracket that just floats?

You’re looking for undermount drawer slides. One well known and respected (although not cheap) brand is Blum. A good sources is A&H Turf

Good luck!

Thanks for the link Herb.

Maybe I’m missing something but none of those seem to have some type of a floating rear bracket and they all seem to attach with locks.

I”ve never seen slides that float in the back like those do. Why not go to the guy’s web page and write to him?

gwilki, Because i did not see the url to his site. Someone had asked in the comments on the video and it was never answered. I emailed them, hopefully they answer. Thanks for pointing it out to me. Sorry i missed the obvious. :-(

Never heard of that particular type of guide.
I did find this for you. You may have to call about the rear bracket, I couldn’t find anything on them.

The URL to the cabinet factory is:

http://www.kitchenandbathroomcabinets.com/

You could try asking them. The cabinet in the video is from the “Carter White” collection

If you can’t find that exact slide (it’s a “budget” version of an undermount slide) there are other options. We typically use Blum 563 in our shop, but there are several manufacturers of similar hardware. We’ve never needed a “floating” rear bracket.

If you tell us more about your specific situation, we can probably help you through the process of installing or replacing drawer slides.
