Have scraped another few bucks together and would like order a few more pairs of Blum slides (maybe 10 pairs).

I had previously ordered a batch from ahturf, thinking I had found the best deal. Much to my surprise it was $33 to ship four pairs of slides! On top of that, it took forever to ship/arrive, no email tracking, nothing. Took about 2-3 weeks to get to me.

Looks like wwhardware is pretty close on the slides, but they want $8 for the locking devices! They were about $2 at ahturf. With 15 drawers left this adds up quickly.

Where would you guys buy it?
Thanks.

Rockler one at a time w/ their 20% off coupons? I really dont know how that price compares to what you’re looking at, and usually Rockler is pretty overpriced, but if Blum is usually pretty set in prices, you might be able to get a deal w/ the 20% off coupons.

I used Atlantic Plywood (www.atlanticplywood.com)
They have at least 1 location in Woburn, MA. I used the Rochester, NY location because it was closest to me. I was ordering all my Blum hardware from them for my kitchen and will probably continue to do so. I used the TandemBox drawer system, and then a lot of 170degree opening hinges for the cupboards with Blumotion. Couldn’t be happier with the service.

Call a few local cabinetmakers. We buy Blum tandem slides in full box quantities . I think the locking devices are about 2 or $3 a pair. Maybe one of them will add your needs on to his next order. Did you look at drawer slides.com?
