repurposedBUYER: We sold several spools of steel cable to a wood treating facility.  They cut the steel cable into lengths and then use the cable as "spacers" between the wood so the chemicals completely permeate the wood on all four sides.  

*A,C,E - The steel cable has uniform thickness for the spacers, the steel holds up well to the chemicals used in treating the wood...the cable has all the Attributes,Characteristics, and Engineering (A.C.E.) required to make long lasting spacer.
