Replacement Glides for 1950's steel kitchen GE cabinet drawers

A quick learner from San Jose, CA says:
Hi, these glides were originally white plastic and form around metal like a boxy horseshoe (?) or squared C shape.
Any idea if you sell a suitable replacement based upon past inquiries?
Also hinges, and I've heard the pinball type metal
Pin that goes into a metal grabber mechanism is no longer made ?

Hey, Christina. We may be able to help. Could you show me a couple pictures of the hardware in question? That will help us find something that could work. We would also like your your measurements, if possible.

See pictures of the slide that am looking for. This appears to be made of Teflon and is 1/2" square by 3/8 thick. It has a grove on 3 sides and slides onto the sheet metal where the drawer slides on.

Hello, Christina, hopefully I can help. You are going to have to make this, I'm afraid. This nylon guide isn't available anymore. My suggestion to find someone handy that can cut and shape a piece of Lexan. The reason I suggest Lexan is because it's more durable. Sorry we couldn't offer an easier solution!
