Crazy idea -- drawer-mounted equipment?

Listening Spaces | Audiokarma Home Audio Stereo Discussion Forums - audiokarma.org
Okay, I have another (crazy) idea brewin'. Has anyone ever mounted a piece of equipment like a drawer?

Here's my dilemma: I have a Conrad Johnson PV-12 preamp that, for now, is serving mainly as a phono section. I've shoe-horned it into my system because it's my only piece of tube-based hardware, and, of course, I wanna play around with different tubes to see what happens.

The catch is my audio setup is a little...constrained, so I don't have a nice, wide-open cabinet top for both my turntable and this preamp. So, it has to live in an equipment stack.

That means that whenever I want to swap out the tubes, I need to reach back into that rat's nest, unplug the pre-amp, and pull it out in order to access the top. Then repeat, hoping I've plugged the right wires into the right plugs on the back.

But!! What if I used, say, some hanging drawer runners? I could mount them to the bottom of the top "shelf" in my stack, then somehow affix the PV-12 to the runners. Then the unit could pull straight out from the equipment stack, still secured to the runners, so I could futz with the tubes. Then I just push 'er back in and I'm good to go.

Anyone ever done anything like this? Seen anything like this? I'm of course loathe to drill holes in the side of the CJ, but maybe there are some drawer pulls out there that are both hanging / top-mounted and can securely grip the sides and / or bottom of the PV-12, without using any screws.

Thoughts? Ideas? C'mon mad scientists out there, let's see whatcha got!
