For cheap I've used slides from old filing cabinets, but I'm in the UK, your filing cabinets may be different.

Search for "full extension slide" on ebay and you'll find a bunch, maybe cheaper than surpluscenter, depending on shipping.

100 pound capacity? I checked out the Surplus centre drawer glides. They look kind of light for my unusual (as usal) project. I may try to find some other source for heavy duty ones. thanx all for the input.

i'l second fleabay. i picked up a few pairs there rated at some insane amount like 200# or something. and they were only $10 per pair for 24" travel. just keep watch for a while, they show up pretty regularly.

so a double row is extra srecurity.
