Object Detail

Brief Description
An engineered, metal, cylindrical tube consisting of three main parts threaded at each end. The parts are threaded in opposite directions so that by turning the central part it is possible to extend or reduce the length of the device. A handwritten inscription in black ink, in two places, reads, "LEFT HAND / THREAD". This item was a prototype of a support for the building of the Great Southern Stand. The engineers of the new stand decided against the design.
