IMPORTANT: I found an error in the sketch. The 4mm at the 45° slants have to be 3.6mm (9/64”)

If you can give me usual sizes of tools like saw blades and routerbits, i can calculate a plan in inches

Here are the plans of my full extension slides. i hope i could help you a little bit.
All measurements are metric but you can adapt them to inch.

4mm equals 5/32” for example

if there are any questions please ask me, i will help you

You can also size them as you want, the drawn example is the original size of The slides in picture three. For heavier loads you can simply meat them up in height and probably in width. The key is that they are matching together. Probably it will take a time to get them running and a few trys. When i made them for the First time i created a working mdf slide…

Number 1 and three is to get more clearance between drawer and sides, you can do it also like on the left side and let them in complete.

Number 2 is the groove for the stopper screw

appears that you let the outside rail into the cabinet for more clearance. Wondering why you didn’t just use the draw side as the inner slide instead of applying it to the side of the drawer? I like them and will probably modify and use them next time I need slides.

using the side of the drawer is possible too. Would be better as you can see the joinery then. The projects, where i used the slides had to go with no risk while building due to time restrictions.

How much weight have you subjected these to? They look pretty sturdy, I’m curious how much they can support.
I might have to use these on my upcoming dresser/changing table build.

Great work!

I sat my girlfriend on the drawer with the black front… And they are working with around 25kg+ @ 550mm length

Great looking slides! I am tempted to try some on my next project. I am also curious what bit was used on the insides of the slides as well.

Thanks for sharing!

You mean the 45 degree cuts? A sliding table saw with a 4mm blade with flat teeth.
Adjustment takes a little time. I think its easier to do this with manually adjustable tablesaw than with electronic control
The groove for the stopper is 6.25mm router bit.
