    Thanks for looking anyway. Will reach out to them.

    Nope, as that's for lifting doors up. I'm looking for something that will support a shelf inside a cabinet, and then bring it out and down to a lower level.

    I basically want just the mechanism from this, without the wire baskets so I can make my own shelves that fit the space.

    Edit: Sorry, didn't see your edit! Thank you

    We have a couple of these already, but no good place to store them in or around the kitchen. A possible solution is to get something more like this, which folds flat and could possibly go in a cupboard.

    Pic of kitchen to show space problem, and also for the curious.

    Totally get that and happy to pay for quality. Hafele was the first place I went looking, they just don't seem to sell what I'm looking for - it would be wasteful (and more expensive than I was hoping) to spend £250 on their 500mm wide systems and then have to butcher them and spend additional money fabricating something to fit.

    I had assumed that someone must sell just the hinges/brackets so that custom shelves could be used but that doesn't seem to be the case.

    They only seem to supply complete systems that include shelves etc

    Have had a look through the Hafele site but can only see complete systems that include shelves and therefore cost £££.

    Could do what @ben6899 suggested and get in touch for spare parts, but I'm looking at building 3-4 of these so it might be a bit suspicious if I say 4 full sets of hinges have all gone wrong at the same time!

    Asked in DIY thread but realised this might be a better place to ask (although now thinking it's probably the same people in both... but anyway).

    Anyone know where I could find just the hinge mechanisms for something like this pull down shelf system?

    Our new kitchen cupboards go all the way to the ceiling but the top is mostly wasted space as we can't really reach, so thought something like this would be great. However, I don't really want to spend £250... and the cupboards are very narrow (345mm internal) so I feel like I'm going to have to make my own anyway. Maybe my Googling isn't up to scratch, but I can't find anywhere selling just the hinge mechanisms.

    Well, this is the question! I have grand plans of getting a bit more into building bits and bobs like picture frames and possibly the odd box/cabinet type thing. Looking for something to make cutting grooves/rebates/dados, vs current technique of making multiple passes with a circular saw or mitre saw at a shallow cut depth
