I'd like to fit a small drawer under a shelf - it's to keep DVM etc test
lead bits in for easy access. So I'd like the drawer to pull out fully -
or nearly. The shelf is 12" deep, and the drawer need only be 6" deep or
so. What sort of runners could I buy for this and from where? They'd have
to be some form of three section (at least) telescopic I'd guess.

B&Q Warehouse have them in different lengths and I am pretty sure,
different types. Be careful which you buy. There are full
extension and regular ones. If you don't find them there then Isaac
Lord definitely do. There are versions which fit at the side and
require in effect a box or vertical pieces (these would be used for
kitchen drawers in cabinets for example) or top slides which I think
could be fitted directly under a shelf and to the drawer.
To email, substitute .nospam with .gl
These can be used succesfully on 25mm mdf to give a pull out shelf
There are also the type fitted under the drawer which are hidden from
The basic type fitted to standard kitchen drawers are generally white
in appearance and the drawer is easily removed by tilting it when
fully extended. These are not available as full extension. They would
probably suit the initial enquirer. He could make a 'full size' drawer
but insert a false back panel to give him the required minimal depth.
He would also have to fit false sides under the shelf, as is commonly
done with pull out keyboard trays, to allow him to fit the carcase
portion of the slide. Quite easily done
Check out a Blum or Accuride website for details on the heavy duty
type (Usually zinc passivated or similiar in appearance).
