BTW, hop you used heavy duty drawer slides. Made mistake of using light duty ones on a big tool drawer and I can sense it's getting old.


Epoxy coated bottom slides.

I decided on these kind of slides because I read in a forum that they install heavy duty ball bearing slides on their shop cabinets and they having problem with the dust sticking to the bearings making the slides gummy and that epoxy coated slides are better because they have bigger tolerance and dust is not really a problem. My drawers are just around 14x14 inches so even I fill it with tools it won't be that heavy, plus it's cheap and I can easily replace them once they are worn.

Made some wooden corner clamps. Used bicycle hubs skewers for the cam lock mechanism.

Great idea (and execution). Are those the quick release things for a bike's wheel?

Thanks you guys.

Not my original idea, saw the design on the web and just copied it.

Yes, it's quick release skewer from bicycle hubs/wheels, it's the front one which is shorter than the rear.

Some minor problems, need both hands to adjust, one hand is needed to counter the turn. If It becomes cumbersome to adjust, going to change nut/threaded cap to a threaded square wooden block which will allow one hand adjustment.

I've decided to just change the threaded cap to a rectangular threaded block so I can adjust the the clamp in front using one hand.

I've threaded the wood using my homemade thread tap. To make the tap I just beveled the end of the bolt and cut vertical grooves using a dremel.
