I'm afraid this track is no longer available, however I do have an idea for a substitute. You could consider our 21-401, 21-402, 21-403, or 21-404 bi fold track (depending on size), in addition to one new 21-002 pivot pin and three 21-044, two as guides and one as a top pivot pin. What do you think of this solution?
A quick learner says:
If i cant resuscitate the guide rail through judicious whacking with a 20 pound sledge- then perhaps its time to consider a new rail system :-)

Ha! Nothing beats good old fashioned elbow grease. Let me know how it works out, or whether my suggestions above won't work. I'd be happy to look into the possibility of alternate solutions.

I think with all the pins etc you have shown me - If i need to replace tracks and pivots it should be relatively easy to do. I do notice that my current pivots are all steel with no nylon cap - so a complete replacement of pivots, tracks etc would be needed- I have graduated down to the 2 lb singlejack for the fine repair work - haha thanks again for your help.
