I stumbled across a nice home made drawer setup that I had to share since I've seen folks asking about where to find cheap, heavy duty drawer slides. This set up looks strong and it uses easy to find/cheap materials like skateboard/rollerblade bearings, T-nuts, and 1" square tubing.

























The rest of the build can be found on this site:

Inside a 80 I would imagine it would rattle your brains out. I had a similar setup, drove me nuts.

With the right setup it would not rattle...in the setup above you can see a gap between the bearing and the slide ..you really don't need a gap using bearings..... close the gap and no rattle and use bearings along the base to control side to side movement... ARB drawers use this setup and do not rattle
