Accuride self-closing slides used on mobile machinery base

Peter Parfitt of New Brit Workshop has uploaded his latest woodworking project on his YouTube channel.

The mobile base includes Accuride’s push-to-open drawer slide, the 3832TR and 3832SC self-closing slides.

Self-close is a useful feature for use on drawers in mobile applications. Not only does the slide pull the drawer close, it also stops any drawer creep. This is obviously essential on a piece of furniture built to hold a piece of machinery that will vibrate during operation.
