SWISCO - The Replacement Hardware Authority

Two heavy Duty Metal Shop Cabinets

A contractor from Durham, NC says:
Trying to find replacement bearings about half of them are worn out. From too heavy drawers I think. Several appear to have been previously replaced as there are at least two different styles.

Take a look at our 32-096 and see if this can work for you.
A handy person from NC says:
Yes I am finally ready to do this project.

Your recommendation is about 2/8 wider in diameter, which might be ok pushing the drawer up by 1/8 inch,
but the wheel and the shank is 17/32=0.531, whereas mine is 3/8=.375. With a bearing on each side pushing in 0.156 the space for the drawer will be more than 1/4-inch less.

I don't know what kind of tolerance it has. In your experience if you think it will work and will take them back if they don't, then I will try, but I was hoping for a closer match.

This is now a shop cabinet, so I am not worried about noise, There seems to be more selection in the steel bearings. Do you think 7319000304 (pg-E20)would work?

Thanks for getting back to us. We don't have anything that fits those specifications exactly, but see our 10-109 shower door roller. That might be worth considering.
