Mason Bay

The rebirth and conversion of a New Zealand fishing boat-and maybe her further adventures. Other boats and observations will happen from time to time.....

I call them poured sockets- anyway here is a complete lesson in fitting end terminals to your rigging wire. This is a 12mm or 1/2 inch one that I am doing for my foremast. I have a bronze caster where I keep the patterns. These are heavey and will probably cost me $nz30 ea. I have had the 10mm ones for some time-in stack as it were. These are 100% foolproof if dne properly. They work for galvanosed wire as well, which I prefer, but I was given a whole lot if 1 by 19 ss. What can I say!
