So I have spent the last month debating what drawer slides to put in the cabinet for below my workbench. Originally I was going to use side mount Accuride 3832SC drawer slides, but I have read some unfavorable reviews of side mount soft close drawer slides. The Blum Tandems have always been in the back of my mind but sacrificing the extra space below has always been a concern. Lately I believe the sacrifice will be worth it.
All the drawers will be hand cut dovetails; hate to cover them up with side mounts. The opening will be for 4 drawers which is 13 2/4”. I would like to know what the size of the metal sides are for the slide mounts. My smallest drawer right now only has about a 2” opening. With the 9/16” clearance on the bottom and 1/4” on the top, along with the 1/2” for the slide, it leaves little room for the contents. May be hard for anyone to visualize.
So I would like to know-
How big are the side mounts for the slides?
