This is from Vintiques web page:
To determine the thickness needed you need to solve the following story problem
(1) Measure the thickness of the glass
(2) Measure the gap width of the channel the glass fits into
(3) Subtract the thickness of the glass from the width of the channel then divide that figure by 2
(4) Tell us the thickness tape you need from the following choices: 1/32", 3/64", 1/16", 5/64"
