  • splicing vise

    I saw this on the Hyde Street Pier at San Francisco. I don't know if you can splice wire cable without a vise, but it looks like it makes the job a lot easier. Who makes, and sells, such equipment?

    There is a name on the vise looks like "meca" and I cant read the rest. If you know any body thats an iron worker they might know.

      I've always heard of these thing called "rigger's screws" or "rigger's vises". I've done a little wire splicing. It's as good a way to get dirty and bloody as any.

      Most loggers, wharf builder, and donkey operators soon learn to splice wire rope improvising a jig by driving 30d nails in a handy tree stump or the head of a piling.

      I'm most comfortable with the logger's splice shown in the photo but the smoother rigger's splice where spliced strands are tapered by clipped away a few wires at every tuck is a bit trickier but not difficult.

      If you're devoted to activities using wire rope, a rigger's screw bolted to a frame that hooks into the receiver hitch of your tender truck is a shrewd piece of equipment to have.

            in four sizes, the largest being a Super Supreme Beaver.

              Whew, I wonder how many smart alecks they get coming in to say, "I just thought I'd drop in and get a little beaver. Nyuck, nyuck." Nudge, nudge, wink, wink.

                    The Beaver vise is to hold the wire while you put clips on it.

                    Not to hold real rope to splice.

                    Cheers,

                    George.
