I've got a set of plans for a reloading bench, looks good, but it calls for "4 sets, each 23" long double track for sliding doors"

The doors are made from 1/4" ply wood. It's the set of plans from NRMA.

Any ideas where to get the door tracks?

Thanks

For sliding doors, Lowe's and Home Depot would likely have it. They sell the roller wheels and other parts for them.

That's what I'm looking for UnCruel, looked all over town, lowes and home depot and didn't have anything the rite size.

Thanks

I built my bench using one of there designs. Didn't put any sliders in though. Mine is one solid bench, as I imagine yours will be also. Good luck finding the sliders.:)

Got the sliders ordered, woodcraft has got them. I thought about not putting them in, but with cats in the house thought better about it.

You can, and it would probably look a little better, but the rails make things a lot easier. Got them in today, now just got to find time to start putting the bench together.

Thanks

Last suggestion; IF you have a way to make slots in the shelving, inlet the "slide guides" fully into the boards, flush with the surface. That will make them look really nice and protect them from damage as you access items behind the doors.

I built that same bench in 2003. I went to glass shop (auto/commercial) and got slides there. They work fine.

Since political statements are not allowed let me just suggest you go to Lowe's and don't allow home depot to profit from your earnings. Also since it would be off topic anyone wondering why i made the statement please don't post asking why.... just use google:)

I have a bench with the sliders. The doors don't have handles, just a hole big enough to get my finder in and slide it over. Works great.
