and with quality parts and
All three types are nonmetallic (phenolic). A223/A224 -Plain
phenolic bore are used as quide and secondary control pulley
in production aircraft. AN210: Similar to MS24566, but have
metal shielded bearings rather than removable composition
seal type bearings. MS20219: Nonmetallic sheave and fixed
ball bearing. MS20220: Flight control pulley, non-metallic
sheave and fixed ball bearing with contact seal. MS24566: Anti-
friction bearing pulley.
Available in zinc or in corrosion-
resisting steel. Examples:
steel). Thimbles are made in conformance
with Government procurement specification
MIL-T-5677 and standard drawing AN100.
Can be used for cable ends on mechanical brakes and push-pull solid wire control cable. Used separately stop, swivel threads all the way through and attaches with another screw. AZ-2372 holds cable in place.
This device, with its' unique 'in vice' gripping
action, attaches securely to
the core wire of any std
push/pull control. The 5/8"
long 10-32 threaded end is
screwed onto a clevis, ball
joint or other hardware used
for linkage to mixture, curb air heat, cabin air,
etc., resulting in a secure, clean looking job. 125
lb rating. Sizes for 2 wire dia ranges available.
Features a black vinyl cover and a wound metal inner jacket lined with Teflon for smooth operation. For use in constructing control cable assemblies with flexible aircraft cable. Will not kink. Sold by the foot.
Made of high carbon which is very
high in tensile strength. Must
be capable of wrapping around
itself without showing signs of
cracking. Used for springs for
tools and die makers, factory
and machine shops. Meets
specification spring temper
An inexpensive yet accurate method
of checking cable tension. Ideal for
determining loads on sailboat rigging,
guide wires, fences or any application
where cable or wires are installed under
load. Manufactured of rugged anodized
aluminum, this gauge is corrosive resistant
and will give years of service.
Detailed operating instructions included
with each tension gauge. Ranges
3/32: 70-300lbs, 1/8: 100-500 lbs. 5/32: 140-800
lbs. Fits cable sizes 3/32, 1/8, 5/32.
R= Right hand. L= Left hand
(Superceeds AN669) Has safety
slot on end to be used with
either MS21256-1 or -2
safety clip/sold separately. Can be
used with MS21251 barrel. Can be swedged on
to cable with a special tool.
Clamp allows you to secure the
output end of control cables
w/.250" or .438" conduit mounting
grooves (incl. ACS & Cablecraft
controls w/threaded ends)
to a bracket, etc. The clamps
cut-out is pushed into the mounting
groove (just ahead of the
swivel end) & a cap plate is then
screwed down onto a bracket to lock the
assembly in place. Includes 3/16" bolts & locknuts.
Thimble bushing inserts help eliminate
thimble elongation when under
load, thus maintaining
correct cable length & tension.
Their slotted design is
intended for use with anchoring
tangs commonly found
on ultralights. Simply open up the thimble, insert
the bushing (w/tang), & then close. Made from
Supertough nylon for superior high temperature &
impact load resistance. For 1/16", 3/32", & 1/8"
cable (AN100-3 or 4 thimbles). Sized by tang
thickness & edge-to-hole measurement.
(38) Clip Locking Turnbuckles Clip-Locking Turnbuckles utilize two locking clips instead of lock wire for safe tying. The turnbuckle barrel and terminals are slotted lengthwise to accommodate the locking clips. After the proper cable tension is reached the barrel slots are aligned with the terminal slots and the clips are inserted. The curved end of the locking clips expand and latch in the vertical slot in the center of the barrel. Fork, Eye, Stud and Cable Ends Must Be Swaged With a Special Tool
Polyethylene pulleys are made from UHMW polyethylene offering low friction and high resistance to abrasion. All use stainless steel bushing with minimum lubrication required. Bushing is clamped into pulley bracket. Pulley rotates on the bushing. Weight: 93-210 - .23 oz, 93-209 - .26 oz, 93-303 - .5 oz.
This quality tool is a great alternative to the more expensive cable swagers. Compound action doubles the force so that you can make perfect swages with less effort. Features a built-in cable cutter that will cut up to 1/4” cables. Swages standard AN copper, zinc, and steel oval and stop sleeves. 24" overall length. Not for stainless steel sleeves.
• Swage sizes: 1/16", 3/32", 1/8", 5/32", and 3/16" • Includes Go-No-Go Gauge (p/n 54-11)
