YOU ARE PURCHASING 1 (ONE) FELT STRIP AND 1 (ONE) RETAINING WOOD STRIP."Each Globe-Wernicke® Section has a dust proof glass door, cushioned with felt. In operation it swings upwards and retires into a space over the books where it is out of the way. These doors act on roller bearings, and contain our celebrated non-binding and noiseless cushion closing features, making a door simple and easy to operate."......... "The doors are Non-Binding, Dust-Proof, Noiseless and Air-Cushioned- the result of our patented door equalizer-the acme of perfection." Globe Wernicke® Catalog #122 circa 1922 ITEM DESCRIPTION/DETAILS: For sale are: 1 (ONE) FELT STRIP APPROXIMATELY 3/8 INCHES IN WIDTH & 34+ INCHES IN LENGTH, ALONG WITH 1 (ONE) 34 INCH LENGTH MATCHING WHITE OAK MOUNTING STRIP THAT IS MILLED TO FIT INTO THE GROOVE AT THE TOP OF THE DOOR. IF YOU WANT A PINE STRIP THEY ARE $5.00 MORE. IF YOU WANT THE WOOD STRIP WALNUT STAINED PRIOR TO SHIPMENT THAT ALSO WILL BE AN ADDITIONAL $5.00. YOU MUST BE ABLE TO CUT THE FELT AND THE WOOD STRIP, AND HAVE THE ABILITY (OR ACCESS THE ABILITY OF SOMEONE) TO INSTALL IT PROPERLY. ANY SMALL TRIM SAW OR DREMEL TOOL (OR WIRE CUTTERS FOR THAT MATTER) WILL CUT MATERIALS QUITE EASILY AND ACCURATELY. IT IS A FAIRLY STRAIGHT FORWARD PROCESS. WE CAN DO IT IN THE SHOP FOR A FEE BUT EXPECT THE SHIPPING AND TIME INVOLVED TO DRIVE UP THE PRICE CONSIDERABLY. LONGER LENGTHS OF THE FELT AND WOOD STRIPS ARE AVAILABLE FOR THE 41 INCH COMMERCIAL UNITS FOR $5.00 MORE. YOU MUST SPECIFY THIS AT THE TIME OF PURCHASE. DISCOUNTS ON ALL ITEMS AND SERVICE CAN BE GIVEN ON VOLUME SALES. WE ARE THE ONLY TOTAL WORLD SOURCE FOR ACCURATE GLOBE WERNICKE® PARTS! PHOTOS WITH INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS:THE FIRST PHOTO: SHOWS THE END EDGE OF THE ORIGINAL INTACT FELT STRIP & RETAINING WOOD STRIP FOR REFERENCE. THE HINGE IS PICTURED FOR REFERENCE ONLY AND IS NOT INCLUDED. SEE OUR OTHER EBAY ADS FOR THE HINGES ASSEMBLIES. THE SECOND PHOTO: SHOWS AN EXPANDED VIEW OF THE FRONT WITH AN INTACT ORIGINAL FELT STRIP & WOODEN RETAINING STRIP INSTALLED.THE THIRD PHOTO: SHOWS THE COMPLETE LENGTH OF THE STRIP INSTALLED & INTACT. THIS IS THE VIEW FOR THE TOP OF THE DOOR COVERING THE ENTIRE LENGTH OF THE GROOVE. THIS IS WHERE THE DOOR CARRIES THE FELT STRIP IN PLACE & THE WOOD RETAINING STRIP IS INSTALLED ON TOP OF THE FELT STRIP. FOURTH PHOTO: IS OF THE NEW FELT STRIP PLACED ON THE GROOVE AT THE TOP OF THE DOOR. THE NEW FELT STRIP IS SHIPPED LONGER THAN THE STANDARD DOOR. IT IS TO BE CUT TO CUSTOM LENGTH TO FIT YOUR PARTICULAR APPLICATION WITH SCISSORS. IF YOU ARE DOING THIS BY YOURSELF, THEN THE USE OF A "GLUE STICK" TO HOLD THE FELT IN PLACE IS HELPFUL FOR INSTALLATION. FIFTH PHOTO: SHOWS THE PLACEMENT OF THE WOODEN STRIP THAT IS MILLED TO THE SAME PROFILE AS THE MAJORITY OF THE STRIPS PRODUCED BY THE GLOBE WERNICKE® FACTORY. THERE WERE VARIATIONS. WE SHIP THE WOODEN STRIPS IN WHITE OAK. THIS IS SUPERIOR TO THE SOFTER FRAGILE PINE WHICH IS NOT SERVICEABLE AND ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE TO REUSE. IF YOU WANT THE PINE STRIP YOU WILL HAVE TO SPECIFY IT. THE PINE STRIPS ARE MADE IN SMALLER PRODUCTION RUNS AND WILL BE $5.00 MORE. WE USE THE OAK STRIPS IN OUR MUSEUM QUALITY RESTORATIONS FOR CLIENT'S, AND IN OUR OWN PERSONAL LIBRARY RESTORATIONS. ON SOME CASES, AFTER THE WOOD STRIP IS INSTALLED, THE TOP OF THE STRIP MAY HAVE TO BE HAND SANDED DOWN (OR USE A PALM SANDER) TO A LOWER PROFILE TO GIVE PERFECT CLEARANCE. EACH DOOR IS BUILT SLIGHTLY DIFFERENT, AGES DIFFERENTLY AND MAY REQUIRE A CUSTOM FIT. MOST DO NOT. WHEN THE DOOR IS LIFTED, ROTATED AND PUSHED BACK DURING IT'S OPENING IS WHEN THE "SWOOSH" IS HEARD. THESE WOODEN FELT HOLD DOWN STRIPS RECESS THROUGH THE GROOVED PORTION OF THE FRONT LOWER BULL NOSE OF THE UNIT (OR TOP) ABOVE IT. THIS IS WHERE THE MOLD/DIRT/MOISTURE IS SEALED OUT HERMETICALLY. THIS IS THE SUPERIOR SEAL OF THE DESIGN. THE WOODEN STRIP WILL NEED TO BE STAINED WITH A DARK WALNUT OR EBONY STAIN TO MATCH THE ORIGINAL ANTIQUE AGED STRIPS BEING REPLACED. STAIN IS NOT INCLUDED. IT CAN BE DONE FOR YOU PRIOR TO SHIPPING FOR AN ADDITIONAL $5.00. THIS MUST BE REQUESTED AT THE TIME OF PURCHASE. IF YOU ARE STAINING THE WOOD STRIP YOURSELF, YOU CAN STAIN BEFORE OR AFTER THE STRIP IS INSTALLED, TO THE DARKNESS YOU DESIRE. SIXTH PHOTO: SHOWS THE USE OF A STANDARD AIR BRAD GUN. WE USE A 5/8 INCH HEADLESS BRAD NAIL WHICH GIVES A PERFECT QUICK INSTALLATION. THE GUN MUST BE POINTED STRAIGHT DOWN (PERPENDICULAR) WITH THE SURFACE OF THE DOOR TO KEEP FROM PUSHING THE BRAD THROUGH THE FRONT OF THE DOOR. YOU CAN ALSO PER-DRILL THROUGH THE WOOD STRIP AND DOOR, THEN HAND NAIL WITH THE USUAL NAILS INTO THE OAK DOOR. WE ADVISE AGAINST THE USE OF THE NAILS. THE HARDNESS OF THE OAK WOOD IN THE DOOR MEANS A HAMMER MIS-STRIKE WILL BEND THE NAIL (HARD TO REMOVE) & POSSIBLY CRACK THE GLASS OR DAMAGE THE DOOR. WHEN USING THE BRAD GUN WE USE THE FULL 120 POUND AIR COMPRESSOR REGULATOR AIR PRESSURE SETTING, FOR A CLEAN SINGLE SHOT INSTALLATION. THE BRADS ARE SPACED ABOUT 4 INCHES APART. STARTING WITH EITHER END, THEN GO TO THE MIDDLE, THEN THE OTHER END, THEN FINALLY SPLIT THE 2 ENDS FROM THE MIDDLE FOR A PERFECTLY SPACED ALIGNMENT (ABOUT 5+ BRADS TOTAL). THE BRADS ARE MUCH CLEANER AND MORE SECURE THEN THE NAILS. IF THE FELT STRIP REQUIRES SERVICE IN THE FUTURE, THE WOOD STRIP CAN BE PULLED OFF MUCH EASIER FOR REUSE THROUGH THE HEADLESS BRAD VERSUS THE HEAD OF THE NAILS. WHEN COMPARED TO OUR EARLIER GLOBE WERNICKE® PRODUCTION RELEASES WE DESIGN EVERYTHING IN OUR CURRENT GLOBE WERNICKE® PRODUCTION TO BE SUPERIOR IN QUALITY & SERVICEABILITY. THIS PROVIDES FOR THE GLOBE WERNICKE® UNITS CONTINUAL USE FAR INTO THE FUTURE. IF THE GLASS HAS YET TO BE INSTALLED WE ADVISE (IF POSSIBLE) TO INSTALL THE STRIP WITH THE GLASS OUT. IF THE GLASS IS IN PLACE WE STILL INSTALL THE FELT & STRIP SAFELY/EFFECTIVELY ALMOST DAILY (USING THE BRAD GUN). THE GLASS RETAINING WOOD STRIP STOPS FOR THE GLASS AT THE BACK OF THE DOOR ARE AVAILABLE ON ANOTHER OF OUR EBAY ADS. WE ALSO HAVE ANTIQUE GLASS ON HAND IF SO DESIRED AS WELL AS ALL POSSIBLE KNOBS. THE SEVENTH PHOTO: SHOWS THE DOOR LAYING FLAT AND THE STRIP INSTALLED FOR REFERENCE ONLY. EIGHT/NINTH PHOTOS: SHOWS THE BACK OF THE WOOD STRIP INSTALLED WITH THE ATTACHMENT HARDWARE FOR THE SCISSOR MECHANISM NEAR BY. AGAIN FOR REFERENCE ONLY. WE HAVE THE SCISSORS FOR ALL GLOBE WERNICKE® DOORS. PLEASE SEE OUR OTHER EBAY ADS. WE WILL BE PRODUCING DOORS (EXACTING TO EARLY 1900 GLOBE WERNICKE® PRODUCTION DOORS) IN THE NEAR FUTURE. WE WILL BE USING 700+ YEAR OLD WOOD.

THE FELT STRIP ASSURES THAT "SWOOSH" SOUND WHEN THE DOOR CLOSES & PROTECTS FROM MOLD/MOISTURE/DUST. BOOK DEALERS WORLDWIDE SING THE PRAISES OF THEIR PRICELESS BOOK INVENTORY BEING STORED IN THE GW® CASES FOR THIS VERY REASON. THE FELT STRIPS ARE USUALLY WORN OUT/BROKEN/MISSING. LEAVING THE DOOR POORLY FITTING & NOT WORKING TIGHTLY. GW'S® & WEIS ARE THE ONLY CASES WITH THESE PROTECTIVE FELT STRIPS. MAKING THEM THE BEST DESIGNED STACKS IN THE WORLD FOR STORAGE/DISPLAY OF VALUABLE ITEMS. THE QUALITY MEETS OR EXCEEDS THE ORIGINAL RELEASED FELT & STRIP.
