Thanks for posting! We can help with this balance, though it will have to be custom made. Before we begin, I just need you to confirm the weight of your sash. It looks like yours has been cut down, since a metal channel with a 2830 stamp should be 28" long, not 27". We will need to recalculate the strength of your spring to make sure you get exactly what your sash requires.

Thanks for getting back to me Paul.

I had measured it, It is around the 16 pound area. If you need to have an exact I'll have to go back to the Jobsite and remeasure it.

Thanks, Joe. We can work with that, though keep in mind custom balanced cannot be returned for a refund. If the spring strength is not right there is nothing we can do about that. I'm thinking of using a 2630 stamp option, which carries 11 through 17 pounds. If you want to go forward, can you just tell me how many you need? Thanks!
