Casement window operator

A handy person from Pendleton IN says:
We need two (left & right)operators for casement window. The picture is a right one. We cannot find brand of window. Home was built in 2000.

Item # 39-253 R reflects some likeness to what we need and so does Item # 39-341 in your on-line catalog; however neither one has the corret dimensions we need.

We are investors and have ordered items from you in the past. Terry

Thanks for posting! Your operator looks a lot like our 39-253R with a 39-529 attached. Do you think that might work? You may also be able to reuse the stud bracket attached to the short link arm .

Paul, Thanks for your help. New pic of same opr. that was in prior e-mail. The arms are in a different position more like on Swisco website. You thought 39-253R w/ a 39-529 slider would work; however according to website this would be a
39-253L. Can you please confirm that this would be a 39-253L & that the long arm dimension and the body thickness is the same as my new drawing (photo attached)? How do you determine left or right. Is it from the outside of the home looking at the window? Many thanks

Upon closer inspection, I agree with you. It does look like the 39-253L may be a better fit.
