Rigging screws

Post by Mikey » Mon May 27, 2013 4:44 pm

I need 4 rigging (bottle) screws - the small type as used to tension piano wire on diamonds or jumpers. Would be grateful to hear from anybody who has some surplus to their requirements.

Many thanks,

Mike Liggett.

How small, I have some somewhere but I think they are shroud adjusters and probably too big. After a quick rummage I can find only one, it is five and a half inches between the pin holes I will keep looking if that is not going to be too big but I am likely to have only two.

If not we have an old moth mast with a diamond fitted. I think the screws are bronze though and wide/flat so can be tension by hand.

Search "rigging screws" on ebay - loads there and I used them on two Merlin masts with diamonds.
