Well made, smooth glide.....Im going to have to crimp its style a bit to make it move less easy
This seems to be high quality cable. I worked for my application perfectly.

The diameter of the knob on this control is approximately 1-1/8".
A-730 cables have a 3/16" O.D. housing.
It requires a 3/8" hole for mounting.
The knob has 10-32 threads. Loctite is used to secure the knob from the factory when threaded on.
No, it is a galvanized housing with an inner nylon liner.
A-730 controls have .050" diameter inner wire.
This cable does not have any specific application. It is a glide free cable with a solid wire end, so if your application calls for this style cable at this length, it should work very well. It is not an FAA approved unit.
You would first figure out the length for the inner cable and cut it to length. Then you would figure out the length of the outer coil casing(accounting for the stroke) and cut it. It may require a hacksaw or cutoff wheel to cut it.
Yes these are commonly used firewall forward on experimental aircraft.
