Abstract

Method and apparatus for effecting jam-free splicing are described wherein a splicing fixture and brass eyelets are employed to achieve the desired joining result. Use thereof eliminates scrapping several thousand connectors after each jam, costly machine down-time necessary to rethread thereafter and repairs to damaged machine parts caused by each jam occurrence.
