Thanks for posting. Before I can confirm what Series channel balance you have, I'll have to figure out what your bottom shoe is. 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?

Hi Tom.

The shoe in the pic are just above 1" deep, shy of 1/16th I reckon.

Thank you.

Thank you. If the shoe is over 1", then it's likely that you had our 15-001 but it was worn down over time. Take a look at our Series 390 channel balance and see if this is what you need.

The sash is about 36Lbs therefore the 28inch 2760 should work right?

36 pounds is pretty heavy, and two balances with the 2760 option can only support 30 through 33 pounds. Can you confirm that you meant to type 36 pounds? If so, the balance may have to be custom made.
