[underlined] Process Check on Splicing to Inspection Instructions A.34 and A.18. Y Shed [/underlined]
[underlined] 22/10/42. [/underlined]
A number of cables picked at random, were inspected and found to have 4 ½ tucks, as required, and the serving was neatly carried out.
All cables are subjected to a proof load equal to 50% of their breaking strain, but method of application is not considered quite satisfactory, as the load is supplied as a momentary snatch, not giving the splice time to stretch and settle. Suggest that load should be held for at least one minute.
Cables 52744C/17 and 52171E/13 were checked to drawing and found correct.
Each cable bore an inspection stamp, Part Number and evidence of proof loading, on a brass tag.
Standards of workmanship is being maintained and process is considered satisfactory with the exception of method of Proof-Loading.
