CD 154




                           

This is my full string of Thomas Hewletts.  They came off of an Entergy Transmission 115 kV line in North Louisiana.  Many Hewletts are still in use on Entergy's transmission lines.  In the photo below, you'll see my "Tiger Striped" Hewlett.  It may be a one of a kind, but there may be more out there to be found. 
For more info on Hewlett Suspensions, go to Elton Gish's Hewlett Page
