 About the project

The four stainless steel wire rope that will hold the jibboom in place.  The top cable shows the stop that the wire rope people attached to the cable.  The lower three cables show the stages of attaching the fitting at the other end of the cable that will be connected to a turnbuckle. The bottom picture shows the completed fitting.  The second from the bottom shows the partially exploded view with the slightly tapered mass at the end of the cable which grips the cable when the two outer parts are screwed together.  The third from the bottom further explodes the slightly tapered mass into three sections held on the cable with a little rubber band.
