  • Turn Buckle and Thimbles!

    Hello Coffee Lovers,
    Just been for a walk (with the whippet) around the block (or three)and in the neighbourhood I came across this interesting installation.
    The residence in question is a relatively recently build and nicely finished with shiny stainless cable and fittings used as fence materials.
    What strikes me as peculiar ,in these times of clever people,the way simple turn buckles in combination with cable /thimbles were installed.
    Is it just me or is common sense just "out the window" ,yes...in this particular case the earth is not going to suddenly shut down as a result however,with a little hesitation and then carefully thinking it through,the running end of the cable would be better positioned encircling the thimble,with the eye of the turn buckle enclosed by the thimble.All eighteen ends are fitted the same.
    I think I need a holiday.(or at least another coffee).....thanks for your time!
    Cheer's,
    Mick.
