Replacing my bi folds and Pocket doors with Faux Barn sliding rail type . Do it from scratch with the welded up2 X 3/8” steel rails and Turn the wooden ball bearing wheels fitted with Cam adjusting height axles attached to the plasma cut hanging strap iron (as you can imagine , this is where my wife came up with the model name perky , actually at first they were called.. TOO PERKY …). Pantry door was located just inside an arched opening and bi fold was always left open, and very annoying to swerve around constantly. Well we solved that problem . Now onto those PITA pocket doors .

I am working on a pulley wire system to make the doors work in conjunction . Probably going to make double track wood wheels where one door winds the other. Will involve making the wheels larger .
