Economical full extension slides?

looking at building a bank of drawers, likely 18 so looking for something cost effective, Rocklers that I have used before are like 15.99 a pair for 22” full extension.

Any one have good lick with cheaper ones?

I got some from Woodworkers supply as a pack of 10 pair…. perfect for me since I am doing 2 – - 5 drawer dressers.

their ‘House Brand’ is Woodtek

10 pair of 22 inch full extension run 85.99 bucks, so 8,59 a pair.

Same price with 1 inch ‘overtravel’ if wanted

I get all of mine on Amazon for $6.00 a pair. Absolutely no problems with them. I have used 11 cases this year.

Alway check eBay. I found Blum 563H drawer slides at a fraction of the cost if purchased from a on-line retailer. If you are looking for lower cost slides there are also many others selling good quality at a low price. Never had a bad purchase of these items.

I have used about 30 of the ones brtech referenced and have worked great in my shop on 22” wide by 22” deep drawers.

Monte….exactly which ones from Amazon did you use. I am always interested in finding economical drawer slides.

That’s about as cheap as I’ve ever seen. Never used them personally, but I’ve heard great things.

WW supply +3.

I’ve had good luck with the KV’s.

Buy them by the case even if you only need a few you’ll be glad you did ;-)

I’ve been really pleased with everything I’ve ordered from I’ve used their drawer slides, table-top fasteners, and hinges. Very affordable, and if you look, there’s almost always a coupon code for 10-20% off your order. Join their mailing list, I did, and they sent me a code.
