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,
and is being considerably used for that purpose where large field wires have to be carried around curves in some unusual position. Its insulating qualities are excellent.
