26" channel balance, weight and shoe end

A contractor from Chicagoland says:
I have a 26" channel balance that has a shoe that doesn't match any of your option. Plus from the photo of the stamp on the channel, does that indicate what type of weight I might need?

Thanks for posting. I think our shoes could replace yours. I think its just a strange model, but it serves the same purpose and being solid shouldn't make a difference. Now we just need to determine what shoe will work.

Please look at the measurements for our 15-001 and 15-002 bottom shoes and note their depths. As you can see, they are 1-1/8" deep and 1" deep, respectively. Which measurement more closely resembles your own shoe?
A contractor from Chicagoland says:
Thanks, Tom. I will confirm the measurements. Can you guide me to the right channel balance in respect to the stamped info listed above?

The stamp really just lets us know what the strength of the balance is. In order to identify the Series, we will have to know what the nylon attachments are.
