Thanks for posting, Charles, and for the great pictures! Just by eyeballing these attachments, I think you'll want to look at our S390-33 channel balance with a 3230 option. Does that look about right? Do the attachment dimensions match those of our Series 390 balance? Let me know what you think!
A quick learner from Charlotte says:
Hi Paul,
I measure the support balance as shown. My balance is 31-1/2". Series 390 shows a 31". Not sure if this makes a differnce. Need more input.

Thank you,

Charles

Are you measuring the metal channel? If your metal channel is 31-1/2" long, you may need a custom balance. I would also need to know the weight of your window sash, as our 3230 option may not be appropriate.

When you measure the metal channel, make sure to not include the plastic attachments.
A quick learner from Charlotte says:
Iam measuring from metal to metal. The weight is 9oz.

Thanks,
Charles

Thanks, Charles. 9 oz. sounds like the weight of the balance. I'm afraid that I need the weight of the window sash itself. It sounds like your balance was cut down from its original length, so I'll need to know what kind of weight it will be supporting. Thanks!
