Hoosier Help

Posted by vgkg (My Page) on

Hi there,
I'm restoring an old hoosier that was previously remodeled to have the sliding shelf locked into place, but now I'd like to put it back into a sliding shelf configuration. The shelf is exactly 1" thick and I will be installing new brackets on either side of the hoosier so that the shelf can slide in and out. I see that brackets can be bought over the net but they come in 2 sizes : 1.25" and 1.5" gaps. For my 1" sliding shelf would the 1.25" do ok or the larger 1.5" gap one?
Thanks for the help.
