The other day, while working up a parts list for a new project, I was looking through a couple of catalogs at drawer slides, cabinet hinges and cabinet hardware. It just seems that every time you turn around, the prices you paid last month are now higher again this month. I decided to do a little searching and compare pricing.

Well, I found this website,

I am absolutely thrilled by this web site. PDF spec sheets for each and every drawer slide up to and including 500lbs. slides and a vast array of hinges and hardware. So far, I have priced out about 35 to 40 of the most common items I have used and they are 30% to 40% lower than most places even when they are supposedly on sale.

PS. None of the BBS’s can even come close either. And you can buy one or a case, doesn’t matter. Just FYI.
