Bed slides are generally $1,000 and up in price. I decided, that would like to make my own bed slide. I have two sheets of aluminum that can be used as the base and may have them bent on the sides, to accommodate a track.
The issue is, finding a track that would accommodate these cam follower stud bearings
If non can be found, would it be reasonable to find a shop to cut to with, three 3/8 thickness bars of steel, then make them into a c channel? The outside edges would have to be welded and leave the inside edges untouched as the cams could hit those welded as the platform is rolled in and out. I would also have to send the bars to a cnc water jet or plasma jet shop, to cut out the notches where the locking mechanism would make contact so the drawer would lock when the handle is retracted.
I am also looking for a good prices cnc/plasma shop, that can do small projects at a fair price and ship to Vancouver bc Canadaif, the price beats out local shops. It can be Washington or Oregon.
I may have to make this in autocad "I am so new, I only touched it a couple times" so may need some help with the design.
Here are some sample web slide designs. I would weld this with steel do not have a spool gun for aluminum and my Lincoln is a home welder not hot enough for aluminum.
