Undermount runners that fix to a shelf?
« on: October 18, 2015, 01:54 PM »
Like this amazing drawing illustrates.

Fixed to the bottom of a pull out box and to a shelf. Don't think I can use standard undermount ones as they want to be fixed to the sides of something, don't have that option.

That is to say I don't think I have that option, I guess there's some clever workaround that someone on here employs for this type of situation.

Looking to buy in the UK if anyone has suggestions.

if the drawer bottom is thick enough to screw to (or infills to make it thicker to mount to) you could use side mounts below....however they are not designed to run sideways, the bearings would not be running on the channels as designed, so I would not want to put much weight on them!

Think I've solved my own problem. Yes, add some uprights to the shelf and just use the side mounted runners that I have lying about the place.

Which was uploading as you typed that Dan  [blink]

Infinity being installed in the sticks tomorrow, be SO good to have a decent upload speed again.

For future reference, Blum makes parts to use their undermounts on shelfs.

I designed the porch and the patio on the back of the envelope, it's not been wasted.

  Kev, this is a THINKING man that we have hear. He needs more space for his thoughts, so why cramp them up on the BACK of the envelope with that pesky fold getting in the way of his pen.... [wink] [wink] [wink]
