Spray WD-40 on Drawer Slides

June 8th, 2010 No comments

This is a trick that I have used many times in my cabinet making carrier. If your drawer is not working smooth, just spray a small amount of WD-40 on the slides. It generally works best if you can apply it to both members on the cupboards and the drawers.

If you put too much oil on the parts, eventually you will have a black dripping mess inside of your kitchen, bathroom or office cabinets. read Spray WD-40 on Drawer Slides

Cabinet Drawer Slide Plastic Spacers Keep Breaking

May 5th, 2010 No comments

Do you need to know how to repair these plastic spacers that are on your kitchen roll-out drawer slides that keep breaking? I have a solution that will fix the problem so that you will never again have to deal with the nylon spacer blocks collapsing.

The professional way to repair your problem is going to cost a little more than just replacing the small blocks with new ones. The extra expense will be worth it because you will never again have to be concerned about the drawers falling out because the supports might break.

You will need to measure the inside depth of the cupboard and the thickness of the gap needed to replace the blocks. What I mean is just measure the piece of nylon. This MEASUREMENT MUST BE exact, no bigger and no less.
