One of my customers has gone out of business and I have TOO MANY
center mount slides in my inventory. I have posted a classified ad on
www.woodweb.com. Are there any other good places to sell excess slide
inventory? I would appreciate any help in that regard.
I am new to the group and I am not sure of the group etiquette. Can I
post a message to sell the slides to this group?
I think there is some prefix you can use to indicate you are positing
an advertisement. I know that OT = Off Topic to indicate positing that
are not directly on the topic of he group. Maybe FS = For Sale?
Why not eBay. It has probably (literally) a million times as much
traffic as woodweb classifieds.

By the way, I looked up your post and the price seems to be extremely
reasonable. I take it that the "1029-like" means that they are
similar to the Accuride 1029 center slide. Rockler sells these at
$6.99 and up ($6.29 in qty).
What length are they? Would you consider selling half-box quantities
to a wannabe?
Have you looked into selling them on ebay?
Yes, the slides are similar to the Accuride 1029. The biggest
difference is that they have a tab on the moving part of the slide,
and you attach a drawer by putting a screw through that hole into the
back of the drawer. The 1029 has holes in the back of the moving
member, and you attach by putting a screw through the slide and into
the bottom of the drawer.
The length of the slide is 15" and the tab is at 14". So you are
limited to a 14" long drawer. My customer used to make oak bedroom
furniture. This slide was used in a dresser and bedside table. I
have many other sizes in stock. I can get you a list. I have a lot
of these slides, about 200,000 of them that is why I am listing this
I will put together a list of all the slides that I have and their
basic dimensions. I will try to email the list to you using this
I will try ebay. The problem is that the slides are not in my
warehouse. They are in a contract warehouse. So they charge me a
handling fee for each shipment. If I split up a box, it will cost me
about $20 + the cost of a box for me to split boxes.
If your ONLY participation in this newsgroup is to sell stuff, you
get flamed and/or reported. There are numerous forsale newsgroups
with 'forsale' as part of the newsgroup name, for that purpose,
I concur that eBay will probably get you much more exposure.
OTOH, if you are a regular participant in this newsgroup you will not
get flamed for posting 'for sales'. Instead you will get flamed for
