Anyone have a rev a shelf pantry unit?

Does anyone have this slide out pantry unit? Rev-A-Shelf 448-BC-8C
If so, is there a half inch of play in it for depth? or at least is there a half inch of play in the bottom slide mechanism ... can I fit that slide in a 22 inch deep cabinet?
If the wood part is exactly 22.5 I can modify it but if the slide is 22.5 I am not sure It can be shortened so I would have to get the following model... which is much more money:

19 inches deep which is rev a shelf 448-BC19-8C

I am measuring 21 7/8 to 22 deep for my pantry cabinet

I'm not familiar with this particular product but I make a lot of drawers (furniture and cabinets etc and I went on line to view what you were talking about. I did not find the exact model but I did look at Rev-A-Shelf pictures.

What I saw indicates they are using standard drawer slides---unless theirs are custom made which I doubt.

So based on what I know about such slides this is what I can tell you. I doubt you are going to have a slide 22.5 inches. They come in full inch lengths. A 22 inch slide would measure around 22 and 1/16th in length. On the back would be enough room to grind off about 3/16ths---to give you 21 7/8's---I have some slides in my garage and went down to check for you. If I were doing it I would shorten both slides to 21 7/8ths. As far as triming the cabinet you know what you know---some are easy some are more difficult, but I would not be intimidated by a half inch figuering I could get it to work, function well and look nice----a little trim in back maybe add trim in front---what ever---you sound confident in you ability to do the same. Good luck---wish I was there to help I love this stuff.

PS: If you have a picture of the shelf unit on line and the dimensions I think you could figure it out just by looking................I wish you well.

8" Base Organizer with Adjustable Shelves for 12" Full Height Base Cabinet > #448-BC-8C > 448 Series - Rev-A-Shelf

Wood is made to be modified With my trusty router I am ready for anything hehe

I may even be able to modify the back.. there is a thin veneered luan over the frame in the rear of the cabinet held in by phillips screws ... frame is about half to 3/4 inch where they screwed into it and empty space under it in the center.

I was just looking at that model on line when this message came in---didn't get the measurements (you interrupted me--I'm glad you did)---from what I saw it looks like a go----you can always replace slides with shorter ones as well--the full slides do not have to run the base of the shelf---just enough to give you full access to the contents.

I spend a lot of time making small wood out of big wood---just keep hacking at it til it looks like what I wanted to make. Have fun-------

Like I say---wish I was there to help---maybe just make the coffee and watch.

You know what you are doing----sure modify the back to get the room---heck you can basically rebuild it from the component parts if need be--- a little work but fun. Then the front would match the remainder of your coach cabinetry completely w/o modification.

Finally got it... It was 1/2 inch over in depth for my cabinet.
The slide has 2 3/4 inchs of play grrrrr. I had called up rev a shelf and the customer service lady said the slide was the depth of the shelf. Gotta love it when they know their product. But I don't have to play with that now

Anyway, I go set up the router and the table saw... router didn't work. Found the switch lost the locknut and the wire hit the armature, and severed the wire, so that took an extra hour and a half... half hour to wire the switch.. hour to crawl around the cellar workshop floor to find the nut for the switch lol. Poor router is going on 30 years so it is allowed to be cranky now and then.
Fired it up and notched the boards for the adjustment pins and all is beautiful.
Just have to take the base apart and shorten that now and put the thing back together.

I like the looks of that unit but for $212, I'll make my own (used to do cabinet work about 40 years ago).

I got it from Plumbers surplus for 132 with shipping. With the cost of furniture grade ply and trim wood, plus hardware it was worth it for me to buy and modify instead of putting one together myself .

Hey ctcamper---thanks for reporting back. MAny times you try to help then you never hear what happened? I have five routers---coulda mailed you one!!!!

I'm installing a device right now that will allow me to raise and lower my dedicated router while it is still in the router table. Makes it so I can do that without taking it out each time. Saves hours on a big project.

Good luck---and good travels.

Nice Anything that saves time is great
Half the battle is setting up things.. the actual work goes quick lol

I was kinda hoping I couldn't fix the router...give me an excuse to "need" another hehe

You saved a bundle on the cabinet---treat yourself. Although I will say some of my tools are in excess of 50 years old and it gives me joy to work with them---

They don't make tool like they used to......
. My great grandfather was a machinist and I have his tool box filled with cutting bits, taps, drills ( most dull now and I am not good on sharpening them by hand ) micrometers etc... All still in great shape and I get alot of use out of them

They glued in the base to the sides.. that was fun to take apart. I peeled up a small area about an inch square on the maple veneer. Not a problem ..glued and drying. Other side I seperated without any damage.
Looking at the unit they used putty in two areas on the maple veneer... 8 inches long 1/8 wide and not the best job of sanding it off. But it is put together ok and should work ok.
The width of the unit is very close to the width of my cabinet opening. Just a tiny bit snug but I think for an rv that will be a good thing. Wood is so forgiving
