Current tandembox best practice

Postby Gerry A Brown » Sat, Feb 16 2013, 9:32AM

Hi,

Could someone please tell me what is the current best method of adding tandembox drawers to get the drilling pattern on the drawer fronts & carcase sides. Or point me to a thread that discusses the topic. I have tried the search function but most of what I find is old information & I don't know how much of it relates to the current build.

Thanks,
Gerry

Hi George I personally have used this type of drawer but I did come across this type of whole pattern in the hardware hole editor help file go to hardware hole editor and click on the(? ) and look under integrated drawer systems.

Hi Scott,

Thanks that was very helpful.

We use a plant on gable on end cabinets & so need a full clearance on that side & a half clearance everywhere else. We are considering drilling in between those two dimensions on the drawer front. This works out to a .6 mm difference between the two. We should be able to use the adjusters to deal with the difference.
Is this common practice? It seems it would be too much complication to have one pattern for a gable that has a plant on & another for a gable that butts to the next cabinet?

Thanks,
Gerry

You can still set the same drilling pattern but you would change the reveal amount when applying the draws, or I'm missing something in translation.

Hi Jason,

No you are not missing anything I am or was :oops: I was not getting the complete picture of how this works.
As you say the software compensates for drawer location on the box when it is applied.

Thanks,
Gerry
