Bought a roll of 9/32 x 1/8 (58-004). To wide and I can't tell which depth makes tight fit with 1/8 to skimpy.
I see to possibile choices..58-158 or 58-050. Any Advice

Thanks for posting! What were the dimensions of your original wool pile? If you have no original pile to measure, what is the width of the slot?
A handy person from Ref# 14905 says:
What I measure with my machinest ruler is the slot is 1/4 inch wide (my bought roll is 9/32) Just a
1/32" too wide. The pile in most spots is down to the webbing base...but there is a back of the window webbing that is crushed but possibly 1/4" ?
Any advice is appreciated Kevin

58-158 might be a good fit, as the base measures 7/32", just light of 1/4". It's hard to say for sure without knowing the original height, however.

I am ordering the 58-158 today. Thank you, Kevin D
