FYI. Just bought 5 sets of drawer slides from Home Depot. They were ball bearing slides and are sold as the
8606c series. They are just awful. Please do not waste your money on these things. Words cannot explain how bad these are. I should have known that $15 was not going to get you a quality slide but I bit the bullet and now am really sorry I did. I knew I had a problem when during installation ball bearings fell out of one the slides. I managed to find a couple of them but the rest are still somewhere in the shop. I had to modify the stop on two of the slides so the ball bearing carriage would not ride over and bind. Well, I should have known better but just thought I would give you guys a heads up.

McFeely's carries Grass brand full extension 100# rated drawer slides for a very reasonable price. The ~22” (550mm) slides are $10 a pair if you buy 10 pair or more and their shipping rates are good too!

Returned them without any problem but did not replace them with others they had in stock. I am looking at Rtim’s suggestion on McFeely’s. Wished I had thought of that first.

I just bought 26 pairs of drawer guides. 100# rating, full extension ball bearing guides. They are wonderful, and I spent less than $7 per drawer.

Great products!

under that:

under that:

That should do it -
