There is a lot of information in the archives:


I am perfectly satisfied with using mine on EHS, it is much better than
going by feel.

 Hello-   Just a quick question -- I was looking at a Loos PT-3 gauge and
been studying the specs. It was of interest to read that the gauge is
to be used primarily for 19 strand SS cables such as on sailboats, and that
calibration on cables of other construction will be a little different.   My
question is does anyone have knowledge or info on how accurate the gauge
is on
the 7 strand EHS guy wire we all use, is it off very much as compared to the
intended cables to be measured?Byron W5FH
