Extension slides for heavy wood table?

I had a very heavy table - about 5' long x about 4' wide with an insert about 18" long. The top is about 1" thick mahogany and there was a massive wood slide mechanism about 30" wide x 4' long by about 3" deep that I had to remove to be able to move the table around. I did a temporary fix to allow me to use the table and now I want to install a slider mechanism to allow the insert to be used or not, as desired.
I found the rockler.com web site and they have a pair of 2.5" deep 36" long ball bearing units:
"Extension Slides - Steel, 2-1/2'' High- Max Opening of 38'' (set)" for $93
but no detailed information.
Anyone have experience of these, or know of an alternative.
TIA

Thanks Rico but I didn't see any more product details there. The prices are better than Rockler's though. Have you had any experience of their products?

As far as the product details, most sites don't have much information. The slides are screwed to the bottom of the two ends and that's about it. You make your choice based on length, extension length, depth - but there's not too much information on the ordering pages. Call up and ask. They'll probably fax you a cut sheet if you ask.

Thanks G H. for the link
There were so many choices on that site and no mention of table slides that I sent them an email and they sent me the link for drawer slides. I tried a few combinations of paint or galvanize, length, etc. and got the message: " can't find any items matching the parameters you specified. It could be that the finish, size......."I sent another email explaining that message and gave the following info:Here's what I am looking for:
Two ballbearing slides. 2.5" deep should be fine. Galvanized preferred to painted. The table insert is about 15" wide so about 36" - 42" length should be adequate. If you would tell me which group this unit fits into, I will go back and have another search.
This was the response "I can't recommend anything to you because I don't know all the parameters involved and do not want to be responsible for you ordering the wrong thing. Cordially, Sales,"
I give up :-)
