    On one of my kitchen base units containing two large (deep) drawers the top drawer front is rubbing on the bottom drawer front.
    I have adjusted the top drawer to the vertical maximum using screw ‘B’ as in the diagram. Whilst it is now just a tiny bit clear of rubbing it is not the same clearance as the other kitchen base units drawers.
    Please advise.
