Help me find a part! Answered

Hello everyone. Looking for some help on this one. I can't find a clear defined picture of what is operating this sliding mirror. The dealers that carry it don't stock the mirror so can't tell me either unless I buy one, 3k isn't in my budget. I was thinking Linear Motion system but thats a high cost. From the picture I can see the stainless steel-track is L shaped. You can also see the mirror is set away some from the main cabinet, and also that the mirror is at the same height as the cabinet base. I've looked for casters, slides and other things I could hack but nothing seems to fit. You should not be able to see the hardware and thats a feature I would like to keep. I'd love your ideas or links to information. Thanks in advice. You can zoom well on this site. http://www.stylepark.com/en/agape/027


Either Get a mirror and build a cabinet to those measurements or the reverse, use a router to cut grooves the mirror can slide in, it wouldn't be perfectly smooth but it would work the same, if you fixed roller wheels to the back of the mirror that could spin freely and they went in a set of tracks you'd get a lovely smooth motion and it wouldn't be pricey. If I get bored/have free time, I'll make a tiny sliding mirror cabinet...

I think he is looking to make a wall cabinet with frameless mirror sliding door. You need some custom hardware to hold the mirror and slide in on the track. There are handles attached so it may be screwed in from the back and supported elsewhere also.

Ah, that doesn't seem too hard. Keyboard drawer (from a desk) + L brackets + some sort of trustworthy adhesive = sliding mirror.

Get a set of mirror doors for closets. Get the glass cutting person to hack the mirror down to the right size and remount the hardware/tracks. I think you will find sliding and swing-out versions. I don't think the big box stores have competent enough people that would attempt to slice a mirror so you might want to find a real glass shop or artist that does that kind of work. You could try it on your own though and risk seven years of bad luck.
