How can I install
drawer slides so that they line up and work properly?
The main thing is to get the slides parallel. Your project needs to be perfectly square and parallel – this makes life easier for measuring. In other words, take care to build cabinets and drawer boxes as accurately as possible.
The other issue is side space; the space between the cabinet and drawer where the slide will be fitted. This must be constant and parallel, and just larger than the width of the slide, usually by +0.2 mm to +0.5 mm.
Getting the slides in the correct position and level can be a challenge, especially if you’re working on a fully assembled unit from the inside and at the back of a cabinet. Accurately pre-drilling the
panels before assembly can eliminate this issue, but the accuracy of manufacture and assembly is the key to a successful build.
Using slides that have a disconnect feature, such as the 3832 series will allow the slide to be disassembled to separate the cabinet and drawer members.
The part (outer member) that fits the cabinet can then be easily fitted to the cabinet and the part (inner member) that fits the drawer can be easily fitted in its correct position.
