Hi all - anybody know where to buy draw runners that i can use to make a slide for an EvaKool FM70 fridge. It is 1020 long.

This mob on eBay sell 1000mm drawer runners but they only pull out 835mm:

http://cgi.ebay.com.au/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=270525530645#ht_3247wt_1167

So I probably need a slide about 1200 long so it actually extends to the full 1020mm (if it doesn't fully extend I can't open the lid due to a shelf above).
Any ideas?
cheers

Depending on where you live I would suggest Galvins hardware Osborne park in WA.

They have a website and fairly certain the "hettich" brand of draw slides would accomodate this length.

I used 850 mm variety fro my twin drawer system with no dramas so far. One word of warning they are not cheap I paid around $400 - 450 for two sets

No matter what length you go for the open length will be shorter than the actual runner length - This is for safety reasons its nice having a fridge slam on top of your feet

Yes that's what I've used for my fridge and storage box rollers.

Hi Luke2,
I have the same fridge and had a standard 800 long fridge slide,I took a piece of form work ply, cut it to the correct size and made a set of runners under it.It fits on top of the existing slide and comes out so that the fridge access is just perfect.
It took a bit of work and lots of thinking but works really well.

I have a 100 series LC and it all fits on the left side ,I have to remove or flip up the back seats when the fridge is in place.
Those slides from h`afele are very expensive .Don't know where you live but I am in Melb if you wanted a look.

I have the same fridge, and I slide it in and out of the 100 series cruiser with rollers from Bunnings. They are fridge rollers, ie placed under a house fridge to move it around. Had no trouble at all and they have been on the evakool for over 4 years. Just used double sided tape to attach the rollers to the underside of the fridge. Couple of timber boards on the floor to keep it in position.

Much cheaper than slides, and if I take the fridge out, I can roll it on a solid floor.

thanks for the great info everyone - I compared the Hafele ($400+), Oveco ($277) and Elraco ($222) and have just ordered the Elraco. They pull out 1200mm and are "extra heavy duty" so they should do the job.

I bought some fairly heavy duty ballbearing runners from a HOME HARDWARE in Alice Springs when the runners on my pot drawer let go.

I got ones that came out about 600mm for $32 and they had much longer ones as well and not a lot more expensive.
