Default Drawer slides.

I am going to make a down draft sanding table and it's going to be mounted under a work bench and pull out like a drawer. It will be 24" deep. I have no experience with drawer slides and I need some help. I thought it might need to have a 100# weight limit and if they make a slide that locks open that would be nice. Also I want full extension slides. Links to where to buy them would be nice.

Thanks guys;

Measure once cut twice and it's still to short.

How about these

Although you are going to need to devise your own lock.

I have bought from this link several times and find their prices very competitive They do ship quickly. Their product line covers cabinet/box/trunk hardware. Good source for #3-6# woodscrews. Over 50 usd ships for free. check what you buy for screws included or not. Good source for xtra long screws for cabinet pulls Whenever I buy I fill in my screw assortment and small box hardware to get to 50 bucks

Can't go wrong with Accuride - or K-V. As far a a lock, go low tech and just clamp a block to the top overhanging the housing.

Even lower tech--drop a few sections of 1/4" dowel in the holes after you pull it out. (assuming you use pegboard like the picture posted in another thread yesterday or so). Added benefit is that you'd not have to pull it all the way out--only the amount needed for sanding the piece you're working on.

Most of the time, I use the house brand drawer slides from Custom Service Hardware. They have several lengths available.

When we remodeled our kitchen, I ordered some 28 inch slides for the two corner cabinets. They work well. Soft close ball bearing side mount. 100# capacity rating.

Use the over travel slides and drop a wedge board behind the downdraft table to lock it in place while you are using it.
