found a bunch of these in a drawer full of parts.
Those are fanortners.
You made that up.
explain how they are used.
It looks like a turnbuckle used to keep swaged wires taught.
i got a whole bunch so, dad used them for something important.
For hanging frames and stuff.
where do they go, in the wall or in the frame or....?
They are used for things other than hanging frames. That was just an example of a swage.
knew what a swage was.
im still not sold on it being for that though. the pin would pull out.
What kind of work did your dad do?
Actually, no I didn't. Someone else did, though.
he was a gen.contractor cabinet maker, home builder and remodeler.
im still not convinced its for hanging things.
That was a guess by looking at it. I am pretty sure you would thread a wire through the cotter pin eye, slip the threaded ferrule over it, tighten the nut around the ferrule, and spread the cotter pin legs to hold it all in place. I just don't know the application.
im still stumped.
I'm stumped too!
Is the black threaded sleeve metalic or non-metalic? Best guess on material?
Is the black threaded sleeve threaded through or does it have unthreaded internal shoulder?
someone rescue us!
