I had to buy it. It is a copper tube affair about eight inches long.
It is about half an inch in diameter at the one (open) end and tapers
down to a fine point at the other (end).
I do not know how to submit a picture to this group or even much about
the "What is it" thing I've seen (and ignored, I'm afraid) from time
So, any help posting a "What is it" entry with picture would be
I've only seen wood and bone fids, and metal marlinspikes smaller than
my little finger, generally used with wire rope. Got a pic of a
hollow copper fid, anyone?
Researching it, I see that some splicing tools have a hollow threaded
hole in the end to pull the rope through.
You and I have a rendezvous with destiny. We will
preserve for our children this, the last best hope
of man on Earth, or we will sentence them to take
the last step into a thousand years of darkness.?
