    Blum Cabinet Leg Levelers - Which Do You Like Best?

    Blum offers two kinds of kitchen cabinet leg levelers: one that screws on and one that press-fits into a hole drilled in the cab floor. Which one have you had the most success with? Is there another brand that you prefer (Rockler sells a version)? Why?

    Here is the link to the Blum levelers:

    Jeff,

    I usually buy the ones that fit into a whole and then saw off the knurled nub and screw it to the bottom of the cabinet. I was always afraid that upon drilling for the nub, if my whole was a bit out of round that the lever may be easily knocked out. Which could be a pain while working alone. They come with four small screws for each leveler. Well, at least the ones I get at Rockler.

    However you install them, I think you'll find them to be VERY helpful and save quite a bit of hassle when leveling a cabinet. Just lay your level down in one plane - or two if you have two levels and go. You can get pretty close if you know your high spots and adjust the levelers right after you install them and before you drop the cabinet.

    Good luck,
