Do you have these coils

A quick learner from Philadelphia says:
Double coil with the number 8 being the only mark on any of these parts

Good morning! Have a look at our Series 140 coil balance and see if this matches your current hardware.
A quick learner from Philadelphia says:
Tom, my part has the number 8, which i thought was the weight. If I look at your number 8, its only a single coil and mine are double. So what weight would you recommend I order

That is odd. Can you tell me the weight of your sash?
A quick learner from Philadelphia says:
Tom, took the bottom window out and weighed it on my home scale and it read 19.8. Does that sound about right.

Great, thank you. I recommend our S140-10. Two of these balances will carry a sash weight of 19 through 21 pounds.
A quick learner from Philadelphia says:
Thanks for your help Tom & Paul, I will try the S140-10's.
A quick learner from Philadelphia says:
Put the s140-10's in today they work great, thanks for all your help
