Desk Mod - Sliding PC

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I want to mod my desk so I can have my PC tucked away but when i need it to get much higher airflow it can slide out. and clean up the top of my desk a bit

Basicly all i need are some rails with rollers that can support my pc. anyone know where i can get something like this? I was looking at home depot but I dont know what to search on their site for something like that.

I was thinking about mabey getting a scrap keyboard tray and using the rails from that.


I will post pics so i can explain more in depth what i mean. but i dont know how to upload to forums.

So my desk mod isnt going as well as planned. then sliders i got cannot support my pc and they dont go out far enough.

How about converting something like this: http://www.organizeit.com/pull-out-c...n-30-quart.asp



I know its for a trash can but most computer cases are of a similar shape. With some modding it could probably be made to hold a computer case.
