Installing a saddle as a track to pocket doors
I had some double pocket doors installed to separate an area into two rooms. (office off bedroom). We used the Johnson hardware, which comes with some ugly nylon guides for the doors which don't really work that well.
The doors currently clear the floor by about 1/4 inch, and what I was thinking about doing was buying a 5 inch wide, 5/8 inch saddle, and cutting a slot in it so that it could be used as a guide for the doors. I figured it will also make the doors a bit more sound proof and act as a guide.
I've looked around for other solutions to keeping the doors running straight, but haven't seen any hardware. I've heard of cutting a slot in the floor and installing some kind of metal track, and then putting pins which come out of the bottom of the door and sit in the track, but have not found a source for that hardware anywhere. I would definitely like that over a "split" saddle.
