"Graham" Turnbuckles from NZ

We have picked up a couple of "Graham" NZ turnbuckles in a box of gear at a garage sale. They are of the size we need at the moment.

Does anyone know anything about them ? I tried the trusty "Google" but nothing informative. Guess they are long out of business.

Are they a good dependable item, they certainly are a unique design compared with others on the market.

Any things to watch out for.

No responses, I figured they were an obscure brand from the past.

We have had that brand of rigging screws for nearly 20 years on our Farr 1104 and had no problems at all.

Cheers
