Marine-grade Stainless Steel Stamped Thimbles. Stainless Steel Thimbles are designed for marine applications, especially for crimping applications. A thimble is used when one crimps the end of a wire, often used in rigging (halyards, out hauls, standing rigging, etc.) and helps to 1. maintain the shape of the crimp, 2. reinforce the strength of the crimp, 3. prevent corrosion and wear and tear. Also, they are used to reinforce splicing eyes in lines, as in anchor rodes. Stainless steel thimbles are also commonly used in work environments and industrial settings: fishing, structure building, etc.

Regular S/S Thimbles
This product should be listed as 316 stainless which it is. The price concerned me as 8-18 thimbles are normally less than a dollar each. I just added them to an order to replenish stock.
