Does anyone have a spare room at the Stouffers Hotel? I'd
prefer my own room rather than a spare bed or bathtub to crash
P.S. I never did see my first message come back - sorry if
this is a dupe.

The "widget" u refer to is known as a sailboat tension gauge, used by
sailors to maintain proper balance of tension in rigging. I've used the Loos
tension gauge for years to set the tension in my guys! Purists may
argue that sailboat tension gauges are inaccurate, since they are calibrated
for 7 x 7 stainless steel wirerope; however, they can be recalibrated
for 7 strand guy wire with a dynamometer. The clear advantage of the
tension gauge is ease of use and speed of application! I can do a
routine check and retensioning of all 72 of my 5/16" guy wires in an
afternoon hours with my sailboat tension gauge. It would take days with a
My tension gauge is manufactured by Loos & Co., PO Box 7515, Naples FL 33942
There are two versions of the Loos Tension gauge, one for small diameter
cables and one for 3/16" - 9/32" cables. The latter version (known as
Model B) is the one u want. With only a slight modification it will work
perfectly well on 5/16" guy wire.
The Loos Tension Gauge is commonly stocked by sailboat oriented businesses.
My Boat/U.S. catalog lists the item as:
Loos Tension Gauge
Model 90 - 3/16" - 9/32" cable
Boat/U.S. Item Number 338584-10
List price $ 40.95
Member price: $34.75

It seems to me that a widget to measure exactly that is made for tensioning the
standing rigging on sail boats. An old friend with a trailerable boat was
telling me about his aquisition of just such an instrument -- but I wasn't
listening very carefully... Any sailors out there want to comment?
