replacement Dillingham Esprit dresser drawer glides

A home owner from Albert Lea, MN 56007 says:

Hello. In 1965 we purchased two Dillingham Esprit dressers and some of the plastic drawer glides have not been working for years. I finally decided to search for replacement parts. The wood piece that the glide slides on measures 3/4 inch. I have looked at your drawer glide options and I think 32-031 looks like it would work. I am wondering if the actual glide measurement on is 3/4" or is it the space between the two supporting edges.
I am not sure I'm explaining this correctly but I may have to take a picture.

I'm am pretty sure you have had questions prior to this about the glide replacement parts for Dillingham Esprit. We like the furniture and want to repair the broken pieces. Thank you. Kelly S.

Good Afternoon,

I do not believe the 32-031 is the drawer guide you are looking for. If you look at the 32-031 product picture you will see that the 3/4" is for the supports and not the width of the track.

Take a look at the 32-030 drawer guide. This guide fits wood drawer slides that measure 3/4" wide.

If you would like, send us pictures of your original drawer guide. Please include with your reply any stamps or numbers you can find on your drawer hardware.

Thank you for your quick response to my request for info. The rear drawer guide 32-030 does appear to be the correct drawer glide and I will place an order for some. Also, there are two (one on each side) plastic "side guides" near the drawer opening that I don't seem to find in your information. They help to keep the drawer going straight when closing and opening and they provide support for the drawer. Thank you. Kelly S.

Hi Kelly,

Look through this cabinet part catalog section for the "side guides". If you do not see them in that section, please submit a picture of what you are looking for so I can help you locate a replacement.
