The strength of cables, wires, straps, tubing, etc. has been tested with a special instrument called the cable tester. The instrument is mounted on flat tunnel No. 1. It is set up as follows The axis of the instrument, steel tube AB, rests on antifriction rollers R and R sub 1, which are similar to the rollers used in the Atwood machine. Two arms, D and D sub 1, are hinge-mounted at the ends of rod AB and turn on axes perpendicular to axis AB. The sensitivity of the instrument is regulated by displacement of weight m along a vertical axis attached to axis AB of the instrument. The displacement of weights Q and Q sub 1 causes the instruments center of gravity to shift horizontally. Author
