What style of drawer is this?


Hello all,

I am refinishing some old cabinets, but the drawers had the slide mechanism shown below. Ive been poking around online but am unable to come up with what this style is called. Any ideas?

I wanted to replace them, but the sizing of the drawers is off, and im looking at a laborious and untested approached of gluing 1/8 inch pieces to the sides to accomodate more modern drawer pulls. Id tossed some of the old ones unthinkingly.

Any help is appreciated, thank you!

That must be ikea and if it is you may be out of luck. Not that my experience is extensive but all slides were 1/2" clearance for the side installs. That means you need half inch between the install frame and the drawer frame. I don't know but search low clearance or 1/4-less than 1/2" (any number between) drawer slides. It is possible to make them. Plastic wheels are available for bifold doors and such. The wheels need to fit into the track on the drawers.

Seriously doubt that you will ever find matching draw guides.

Rather than adding 1/8" to each side of the draws I suggest that you add 1/8" strips to the sides of the frame. Reducing the size of the opening by 1/4". You could use some 1/4" Luan which is really only 3/32" thick. Might have to do a little sanding to get down to 1/8", but you are only sanding small strips.

Luan is also cheap.

Don't understand what your problem has to do with changing draw pulls.

these babies are floating, i dont think i cant add to the sides.

youre right re "pulls". my jargon is way off. i mean these drawers parts that support a track for drawers that pull out.

Don't understand. If you can add to the sides of the drawer and expand their width to fit the opening, logic says you could add material to the width of the opening to reduce its size to fit the drawer.
