7/8" channel Balance shoe

A handy person from Bradenton, Florida says:

I am looking for a shoe that fits a series 385 channel balance. my shoe messures 7/8" while your part# sizes are 15-004 1 3/32" and 15-005 1". Is there a shoe that will work for me or will i have to file the shoe down to size?

Thanks for posting, Bill. A Series 385 is actually defined by its attachments, so I don't think that's what you have. Could I see a few pictures of your shoe? That will help us determine what it is that you have.

Thank you for the image! That's a huge help. Now, we don't have a shoe that measures 7/8", but I think you might want to consider our 15-005 shoe, which has a 1" depth. It may still work, but if it doesn't you should be able to file it down a little.

If you agree, check out our Series 380 channel balance.
