Iâ??ve got a couple of large (large for homeowner size) Craftsman tool boxes.   
One of them has regular drawers.  Non ball bearing slides.  Iâ??d like to 
convert at least the bottom two drawers on this one to ball bearing sides.  
They are heavy due to hammers and body work equipment.   Donâ??t want to throw 
this cabinet out but the drawers keep coming off the tracks due to the weight. 

Anyone done this?

Iâ??ve seen ball bearing slides on Amazon and eBay pretty cheap.   

Iâ??m concerned about how to attach the slides to the cabinet and drawers 
Donâ??t know if bolts would work.   The current setup has a bent lip on the 
slide with matching grooves/lip on both the drawer and cabinet.
