Differences between Charging tools

A quick learner from Avondale, PA says:
You sell two different types of charging tools. Are they both for spiral balances used with tilt windows? Can either one be used for Patriot Window spiral balances?

We have two main types of spiral balance charging tools. One type if for spiral balances in non-tilt windows and the other type is for tilt windows.

We have two non-tilt window charging tools, the 75-004 which is for only a couple of uses and the 75-005 which is standard duty.

We also have two tilt window charging tools, the 75-006 which is standard duty and the 75-033 which is for heavy use.

Do you know what series your Patriot window spiral balances are? You can start here on the first page of the spiral balance catalog. Follow each step until you determine which series you have. Once we figure out what series balance you have I would be able to tell you definitely which charging tool you will need.

You could use either the Swisco 75-006 Charging Tool or the 75-033 Charging Tool.
