Securing Pull Cables
In a recent blog I suggested i would show how I secured cables onto the pulley for the lifting wing. For this project the load on the cable is not significant so I attached the cable by drilling a small hole in the groove of the pulley, and securing the cable with epoxy. To ensure good grip I pulled the cable through a crimp fitting, tightened it, removed any extra cable and then pushed it down into the hole. Lastly I filled it with epoxy and allowed it to dry. It is shown in the photo below. The pulley is 7/8" dis. with a 1/4" hole in it. It will be glued onto the shaft actuating the wing shown in an earlier blog.
I've shown it again below as it will be approximately placed on the wing shaft when finished.
