Default kitchen cabinet drawers - slides?

Looks like I may be building more cabinets than originally planned. Four drawer bases (2 @ 15" and 2 @ 30") each with 3 drawers.

Was looking at the Blum undermounts with softclose. they run about $25 to $30 a pair.

I also see Hafele, Knape & Vogt...... which would YOU use?

Charlie,
They are all very good high quality hardware. The soft close feature is a REALLY nice feature.

Gslide makes undermount softclose slides that are a clone to the Blum at half the price.

Who carries the Gslides? I googled it but I don't come up with any drawer slides.

Thanks,

I get them from a local supplier here in Pico Rivera , Ca. at a place called MK tools & Abrasives (562) 776-8818. They also carry Blum if you wish to pay more but no need I think they will ship. I found them by accident when I was looking to buy a new MK tile saw (not the same company).

Their website with contact info. They don't show very much of what they carry you have to ask. They also carry Blum & Salice hinges & all types of pulls & knobs:

Haven't found any deals on undermounts. I've been getting good prices on side mounts from here:

They look and feel the same as the KV my local BORG carries. I thought woodworkers supply had some good prices on drawer slides also but when I checked I couldn't find them. You may want to check their site also though, I just took a quick look.

The problem with experience is I usually get it immediately after I need it.

An interesting (to me) observation. At the bottom of the C.E.N.S. / GSLIDE page they give the expansion of the acronym: China Economic News Service.

I found that by looking up G-slide in Google.

Not long ago I bought some 18" G-slide undermount soft-close slides for a bathroom vanity from MK Tool & paid $15.00 ea. The Blum were at least double. Side by side they look identical & the inst.instructions are the same. The 21" are a couple dollars more.

Last week I picked up ten 22" side mount bearing slides & the cost was $3.75 ea the 24" slides were no more than $6.75 ea. They do not look cheap & function very well. They were better quality than a pair of slides I picked up in a pinch at Home Depot that I paid $15.00 for. If you search around you do not have to pay top dollar for good cabinet hardware.

Have a nice & safe day!
