This may sound a silly question, does the lenght of ball bearing drawer runner have to equal the depth of the drawer? the reasoin I ask is, as I sit polishing a seat at my desk I noticed the slides on my drawer tote are about half the lenght of the depth of the cabinet yet the drawer opens fully. Is this an acceptable practice or should the slide be as near to the depth of the drawer as possible?
My desk drawer doesn’t hold particularly heavy items but as I will be undertaking some shop projects in the near future requiring drawer slides I was hoping someone could provide some info. I have sourced some runners which give 20, 50 & 80Kgs holding capacity which will suit my workshop needs. So if for instance I have an 18” deep drawer what lenght of runner should I be using.
Thanks all in advance
