Cable wrapping tool
I'm so amazed by the generosity of people. Out of the blue, Chet Peek offered me me his wire wrapping tool to use. I was nearly speechless! Sure, I'd love to use it! These tools are so hard to find.
True to his word, the package arrived this morning. Chet, as you remember, has restored a Jenny and a Standard J1.
This tool is a jig that holds the cable on the thimble so you can wrap the wire around the cables. Pretty ingenious. I can't wait to try it out.
I had read about this WWI vintage tool in my 1940 book Brimm and Bogges Aircraft Maintenance for the Airplane Mechanic but never thought I'd ever see one. The book is a great source for "the way they used to do things"
Anyway, I'm indebted to Chet for use of this tool. It will make my life much more pleasant!
