Topic tags/keywords: box hardware question

Anyone know of a source for the brass bars use to make up cantilevered trays that pull up and out, like in a tackle box? Also need shoulders screws to act as a bearing for the bars. The pix shows an example of same in a jewelry box; note the side opening trays. I’ve looked everywhere and found absolutely nothing, don’t even know what these things are properly called! Sure I could make some up out of brass bar or sheet stock but I would much rather grab something stock of the shelf and spend my time makin’ sawdust…

I think I saw something like that in the Lee Valley hardware catalogue. I think they were for a sewing box, but its really the same application.

Don’t know about brass bar stock, but here’s the hinge mechanism from Rockler
