Source for Cabinet Hardware

I'm in the planning stage of new cabinets and drawers for my boat, so I've been searching for marine grade cabinet hardware. Here is one that blew me away because it has many of the replacement parts that I need when repairing other boats: Marine Latches and Mobella hardware.

If anyone has found similar resources, please post them.

In addition, I just learned about over-extension drawer guides that allow 150% drawer extension. The most intriguing unit is made by a French company, Chamberlan (http://www.chambrelan.com/en/pages/g...res/super.php4). If any one knows of an equivalent product, available in the U.S., I'd be very grateful to know more.

Check out Antique Cabinet & Furniture Hardware :: Whitechapel Ltd. ... not marine but excellent restoration hardware, quality hinges that don't have steel pins, latches, etc.

Also see Timage & Co
PO Box 141,
Lakes Road,
Braintree,
Essex,
CM7 2SG
United Kingdom

Tel: +44 (0)1376 343087
Fax: +44 (0)1376 347706

Can't find a web presence for them but call England and get the catalogue... push button metal door latches, lot's of other very good stuff. The print catalogue is great, worth the phone call, and it's simple enough to call and order from them.

Hope this helps.

Best, Bob S/V Restless

Found it!: https://hachol02.hafeleonline.com/OA...?section=11672

This is the cabinet hardware found on Bristol Channel, Hunter and other boats. I needed this to make repairs on customer boats, as well.

A lot of upper-end builders are using Sugatsune. They have drawer slides and european type invisible hinges in stainless. Also drawer latches. You can buy Sugatsune from a variety of sources. It's not terribly expensive.

Stainless Steel Drawer Slides, Handles, Knobs, Catches, Latches, Lid Stays, Hinges & Architectural Hardware

I have not compared the prices on your links, these guys seem to have some deals. Hinges, Hasp, Latches and Handrails .

I have noticed that you are a San Diego guy. I am looking for a Marine Electrical engineer to help me design my system on my project, can you recommend some one.

Can those that posted different suppliers comment on whether or not they have actually bought from them (or somehow know of their reputation).
Thanks.

Best Regards,
Extemp.

I've purchased a fair amount of stuff (like well over $1000 worth) from each of the links I posted... no problems at all from either of them. Both were excellent to do business with.

Best, Bob S/V Restless

We have been referred to Rockler's in the Keaney Mesa area. They have full open drawer slides. I have phone them for information and was very pleased with the response. If interested I have their phone #. Hope this helps. Diane

Marine Latches and Mobella hardware.
After looking at these guys website, they seam to have some stuff I'm looking for (Southco) and it would appear that they ship to Canada.

Anyone have any experience with them?
I'd sure like to know if they are good or bad to deal with.

Best Regards,
Extemp.

I've bought quite a bit of Sugatsune - it's much more widely available than it used to be. They also bought Lamp. I've always been happy with the quality. The descriptions are very clear about the materials in each piece (e.g. stainless, zinc, etc.).

I've ordered from these folks a couple of times with good results and good pricing:

Cabinet and Specialty Hardware - Knobs, Pulls, Handles, Hinges, Slides, Locks, Catches, and more - Alema Hardware

Dmarina, Thanks re: Rockler. I go there fairly regularly to check their stock. I was looking for the cabinet latches, drawer guides and other hardware that I am finding online at some of the places folks have volunteered here. The people at Rockler's have been quite helpful in the past, especially with odd-ball finishes such as tung oil and specialty stains. They have some neat hardware, especially stuff to handle computer cables, etc. But nothing to match the existing hardware I need to repair my customers boats. Oh well, can't have everything. Thanks for mentioning them as a local source. We are really lucky to have such a variety of suppliers in this area.
