Well it is probably not, but if you have done a ton of brakes you should be
able to imagine the short end of the pivot with the holes is where the
manual brake cable end goes through. As the cable is pulled the arm pivots
and the arm that is bent at an angle engages the star wheel on the adjuster
on the opposite end from the wheel cylinder. In my scenario this is not a
tool rather a universally part of the brake system that works on either
side of the car. Be sure to use your imagination. :~)
I just added another photo of number 196, it's a side view showing that the
holes on this tool are offset 5/32". I've never seen hog ringers that were
offset like this, also the holes are smaller than the usual indentations on
ringers. One more reason I don't think that they're ringers is the handles
seem to be made for work in which you wouldn't have to sqeeze very hard,
although I've never worked with split rings and don't know how much pressure
is required with them.
used to have the same pliers bought from J.C. Whitney long ago to replace
the seats in a '62 corvair. You do not want the ring to meet but to pass. It
does not take much pressure to do this but after a few hundered or so your
hands do hurt. like I said cheap...
Automotive hog-ring pliers. The offset allows them to close the ring
in an overlapped circle. They're really cheap pliers a la JC Whitney
from the 70's. If you have a large stock of old Whitney catalogs, look

They often do, but six is also common. It's used to form a rope of
seven "strands", around an untwisted or pre-twisted central core. It's
a common construction where the strands are quite stiff and
heavyweight, around a softer core for flexibility.
There's also little need for symmetry. You can produce a rope with 3
or 5 strands quite easily, just by skipping strands.
I *could* change the threshold setting, but then I would be
having to fight with more of the OT postings which are typically
cross-posted, so I won't.
That may be because I'm one of the few who is filtering on
cross-posted usenet articles to reduce the noise threshold.
I'm trying some reverse filtering on the "Subject: " header
(please only change the Roman numeral) to undo it.
Once I see a first response with the "Newsgroups: " trimmed back
below my threshold, I can navigate back through the threads.
And I *hate* attempting to navigate newsgroups on Google -- and
would certainly not *post* to them via Google. A web browser is *not* a
proper newsreader, IMHO.
Going to Google would be introducing more problems to attempt to
cure this one -- and I *could* cure it just by turning off the
newsgroup-count based filtering.
If you can cut down the heavily OT postings which are heavily
cross-posted, I would not *need* that filtering -- except for the
occasional spam. (Or maybe it is more than occasional, and I am simply
not seeing it because of my filtering. :-)

I haven't received much feedback on my site so I thought I'd ask for
comments pro and con. One possible issue is image size. Smaller ones would
load faster and might be easier on the eyes. I think that large close-ups
are interesting, but it's been suggested that some of mine are too big.
Any comments about what you like or don't like would be appreciated.
Please don't post your replies on the newsgroup, but send me a private
I have no problem with the file size, but I do have a cable
I would like to have a better system of finding what was finally
found to be the correct answer.
