No matter how carefully I install Blum soft close undermount drawer slides something very frustrating often happens.
When fastening inset drawer front, I very carefully shim front until margin is perfect all away around face frame opening then press tight to double-stick carpet tape to hold in position. Then carefully pull drawer out and put two clamps on and install four screws.
Now I take off clamps and close drawer to admire my perfect alignment and the dam thing closes to a completely different orientation. Its like the drawer does not close to the same position as it did when I aligned front.
What am I doing wrong? The only thing I can come up with is perhaps I install the drawer slide hardware to carcase not wide enough or close enough in relation to drawer width. There is some play in the system left to right that seams to be causing these inconsistant and frustrating results. Lets face it, there are few things more satisfying than perfect inset door or drawer front alignment
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
