Thanks for the scans--these are great. A change, indeed, from today's crimp-it, microwave-it, e-mail-it, overnight-mail-it, etc.

The Western Union splice technique will come in handy next time I have to splice a broken telephone wire in my house!!!

I'd use heatshrink to cover it though....instead of tape.

I've actually used quite a few of these splices myself in telecoms/electronics work!

The "Western Union" splice was also commonly found in the U.K. in GPO Telephone manuals.

Sure glad that that is a past practice I am very grateful to the feller(s) that invented wire nuts and kirneya!!

Don,

What is "kirneya?"

Anyone know when wire-nuts started being used? I'm assuming 1930s or 1940s?

Sven, you may be referring to an electrical connector with the brand name of "Kearney" http://www.cooperpower.com/AboutUs/history.asp They are now a division of Cooper Power...one of the big boys.

Bjarney:
Are Kearney's the same thing as "Split Bolt" connectors?
