Adjustable Height Pull-Out Shelving
From contributor C:
As an alternative, it seems to me that you could fairly easily mount the cabinet side slides to plates which run front to back on the cabinet sides, with metal dowels (epoxy shelf rest pins into the back of the plate) which engage into the shelf pin holes (say two holes front and two holes back), which would perhaps fulfill these requirements? I hope I am being clear.
From contributor L:
I made a system that works well. I used it to make an adjustable pullout system using Blum undermount slide. I make a rail that had a "T" slot in it. I placed two of them vertically in my cabinet, one in the front and one in the back. I used a "T" nut which I modified in shape to fit nicely in the "T" slot. You put a screw through the appropriate hole in the slide and screw on the "T" nut. Slide it into the "T" slot and tighten down. I put pencil lines on the "T" slot board and lacquered them so there was a height reference.
From contributor R:
Don't know if this is an option in your case but for my shop cabinets I made my own system. I made notched verticals to plug in cross members with slide attached to them. The back verticals have a hole drilled in them to receive the head of a screw protruding from the back end of the cross member. This keeps the slides in place when the drawer is fully extended.

Another option is to line bore for 5mm holes and use euro screws.
From the original questioner:
Thanks for all the responses. Contributor R - I really like the setup you used for your cabinets. I might use that one on another cabinet.
