Millguard balancers

Hi, I am trying to figure out which balancer to purchase. It is stamped 26 4 FV CMC 7. The metal itself is 27 inches long and approximately 1/2 inch wide. If you could be kind enough to direct me to the same balancer, I would be appreciative. Thank you.

Thanks for posting. Before I can offer an applicable replacement for this channel balance, I just need to know a bit more information about the bottom attachment. Please take a look at our 15-004 and 15-005 channel balance shoes, and note their depths. As you can see, they are 1-3/32" deep and 1" deep, respectively. Which one more closely matches your own bottom attachment?

Once we know that, we can determine what Series channel balance you have, and we can work from there!

It looks like this measures 1-3/32.

Thank you. In that case, please take a look at our S385-27 channel balance with a 2640 stamp option. Do you think this may work for you?
