Banjo Eyes and Bolts

A weld-on steel banjo eye specifically designed for use on dump tailgates. This eye fits a 3/8″ chain and comes either low carbon stamped steel or stainless steel construction for optimal use.

Banjo has always been an avid dreamer, but his most ambitious idea ever saw him and Ro purchasing one-way tickets to the Isle of Mull in 2014. From here they run their family cheese farm – where each day brings new adventures!

Bulging eyes

Exophthalmos or proptosis occurs when one’s eyes protrude forward from their eye socket, usually as an indicator of another health issue and could ultimately result in vision loss if left untreated. Regular eye examinations should be scheduled in order to avoid complications like double vision and pressure on the optic nerve; in some instances this condition may affect both eyes symmetrically while it might just one eye at a time.

Graves’ disease, an autoimmune condition affecting the thyroid gland and leading to too much hormone production in the body, is often the culprit behind bulging eyes; however, even those with normal thyroid functioning may develop bulging eyes due to thyroid cysts or medical issues; sometimes protruding eyes result from trauma or surgery as well.

People suffering from bulging eyes should visit a physician immediately. If symptoms worsen, a specialist in orbital decompression surgery should be contacted; this procedure involves extracting bone from the outer portion of their orbital socket in order to relieve pressure on their optic nerve and relieve any pressure off its path. It can usually be completed quickly at a hospital setting with short recovery timeframe and low risks involved.

As part of treating any health condition, it is also crucial to use artificial tears or lubricating eyedrops regularly in order to maintain corneal hydration and protect it from damage. Furthermore, it is wise to keep the surrounding areas of your eyes clean and dry to reduce infection risks and schedule regular eye exams so your doctor can monitor progress as well as detect changes in vision.

Most cases of bulging eyes resolve once their underlying conditions have been addressed. If swelling is severe, corticosteroids or other medications can help control it; otherwise surgery may be required if there is a tumor causing the bulge; in such cases as Hemangioma and Lymphoma that require radiation or chemotherapy therapy to treat.

Banjo eye splice

The banjo eye splice is a type of rope splice that creates a permanent loop at one end of a rope, similar to what would be found on a banjo. As its name implies, this splice resembles its namesake’s shape – hence its nickname! Easy to make and able to support heavy loads, the banjo eye offers an alternative solution when used properly as well as being an alternative solution when whipping knots may not suffice.

Banjo eyes are an increasingly popular solution for securing or lashing items on boats and other vessels, however it must only be used with rope that has been properly spliced if used incorrectly as this can lead to serious injury and potential danger. Therefore it’s always recommended to consult a professional.

To create a banjo eye, the rope must first be unlayed or untwisted at its end to expose its individual strands. Once exposed, these must then be twisted back onto themselves and tucked back in tight to lock the splice in place before whipping to protect and strengthen it further. Adding an anti-chafing rope thimble may also help.

An eye splice is ideal for use on long-term or critical applications like mooring lines and towlines, for which five “tucks” should be completed before making the eye. When working with synthetic ropes however, seven “tucks” is suggested.

Splices can be completed using any number of tucks; the more tucks, the stronger it will be. Coverings may also be added for added durability; however, this step is optional as some high performance ropes such as Aramid Fibers and Dyneema boast cores strong enough on their own that make their use unnecessary.

Rope splice

If you want a long-lasting and strong eye on your rope, rope splicing could be the way forward. This technique involves using two pieces of rope joined at either end to form an open loop that locks together when tightened – an effective alternative to knot-tying that reduces strength significantly and can easily be implemented across various types of rope. Plus it’s simple and quick!

There are multiple different types of splices, including the short splice and eye splice. The short splice is most frequently seen used on light lines like fishing lines; it entails unlaying one rope’s strands and interweaving with those from another before tucking them back into place either for neatness or for more permanent joining. An eye splice, however, is more commonly found aboard sailing vessels and features cut splices which create closed loops at either end.

To create a banjo eye on the end of a rope, first make sure that both ends are not frayed by using rope-safe glue or tape on them. Next, open up one point by twisting in the opposite direction and inserting one of your strands through that opening; repeat this process along its entire length, being sure to insert two evenly spaced strands each time so as to create an appearance similar to a quasi-squid creature with round head and three evenly spaced tentacles dangling from its surface! When finished off properly, your rope should resemble quasi-squid with its round head and three evenly spaced tentacles dangling from its surface!

As soon as the ends have been tucked in, use masking tape to secure the splice and help remember which strand is which, and prevent confusion later. Once this step has been completed, use it for whatever purpose necessary!

Hand splicing may be complicated, but there are numerous videos online to guide you through it step-by-step. If time is an issue, pre-spliced rope may also be available for purchase.

Banjo bolt

Banjo bolts have a variety of applications ranging from fluid transfer to vehicle brake systems. They’re frequently found in construction equipment, tractors and harvesters, industrial machinery and aircraft landing gear systems; providing secure connections without leakage between components that ensure safe machine operation. Banjo bolts can be made out of various materials but stainless steel remains popular due to its durability and resistance to corrosion – they even come in both standard and metric thread types!

To determine the appropriate size of a banjo bolt, it is first necessary to understand its dimensions and construction process. A banjo bolt consists of a hollow shaft connected with an end flare with holes for fluid passage that intersects with a flared end equipped with holes for fluid drainage; these components are then sealed together using sealing washers; creating durable connections capable of withstanding high pressures and extreme temperatures.

Banjo bolts are essential components in ensuring safe and secure hydraulic systems, connecting hoses to valves while creating an airtight seal that prevents leaks or debris accumulation from damaging systems. Therefore, it’s vital that banjo bolts be selected according to size specifications for optimal results and connections that last over time.

Bangjo bolts come in various sizes ranging from 14 to 18 mm. Some are constructed using brass while others prefer aluminum; brass is ideal for low pressure applications as it resists fuel corrosion while aluminum offers superior performance in aerospace and high performance automotive systems.

Prior to using your calipers, ensure they are clean and free from dirt or debris – this will help ensure accurate readings and precise results. Furthermore, use even pressure when closing them so as to not deform bolts or cause any other damages.

After measuring the length of a banjo bolt, take note of its measurements to help with replacing it correctly. It is also essential to keep in mind that thread length differs from overall diameter; to accurately assess this parameter you can use a tool known as a thread gauge.
