    I use the Blum Tandem. The only thing to keep in mind is that the “usual” 1/2 inch side clearance of most slides is not true with these. Also, you need a 1/2” pocket under the drawer bottom. If you are planning to reuse existing drawers, and just replace the fronts and hardware, the Tamdem type won’t work. You will need new drawer boxes, as well.

    Blum tandembox. I have em in my current kitchen, 18 years or so, still quiet, easy to clean, strong and work perfectly. We are building a new smaller kitchen, it will be Blum tandembox all the way.

    Blum Tandem is about all I've used for kitchens and standard weight cabinets of most types for customers since they came on the market. (For self/non-kitchen or bath I still sometimes use wooden glides)

    I use KV side mount full extension or over-travel models in the appropriate weight for collections drawers, file drawers, etc.

    Somehow started buying from AH Turf & lawn supply when they were getting started in the hardware sideline. For years they were the best prices and good customer relations. I have not bought anything for a few years. They seem to have continued to grow in the non-ag area and there is an online catalog for comparison shopping.

    I used Grizzly full extension slides. Good quality and decent price. I think I have an unopened box of 12 sets of 22" slides for a project that never happened. PM me if interested.

    I'm a cabinetmaker and use KV MUV undermount self-closing slides. Your best bet is to find a cabinetmaker in your are who is willing to order in your slides with a small mark-up.

    What do you guys like about Undermount Slides? whenever I'm planning cabinets I want to try the undermount but for some reason I go back to the side mount type.
