I"ve got an Allis Model 78 side delivery rake that uses two steel lift cables, each with a clevis on one end and the other end crimped into a threaded stud. Both cables are frayed and broken, so would like to replace.

What do you call the threaded stud that would have an end open for crimping in a cable? I would imagine they are still available and not unique to the rake, just haven"t hit on the right name for searching.

Swaged cable studs. If you have a marina or boat dealer nearby who works on sailboats, they can probably fix you up. It takes a special tool to swage them.

The fitting he describes is not Nicopress, although it might be possible to replace it using Nicopress and other hardware.

You can swedge them with a bolt cutter that you modify, by grinding the correct profile, into the blade halves!

You could always run down to the hardware store, buy a eye bolt, and roll a farmers eye in your wire rope. They are real easy to do. Now a loggers splice is just a little harder to do.
