A Cable Insulator.

We present herewith a cut of a large cable insulator made by the Oakman Manufacturing Company, of South Boston, Mass., and designed especially for carrying heavy wire stretched in unusual positions. By means of the cleats at the top of the insulator the cable can be carried from it, up or down, or off at any angle, and its dimensions are sufficient to accommodate cables up to two inches in diameter. It has proved convenient for railway work,
