Default Stabilator Cable Thickness

Does anyone know the thickness of the Stabilator cable. I'm not at the hangar and I can't measure them. Trying to figure out what size Tensiometer I need to get.

David-

Not at the hangar to make a measurement of the stabilator cable directly for you, but almost certain the cable is 1/8". However, I can say the Burroughs BT-33-75D cable tension gauge will do three different cable thicknesses ... including the proper scale for the RV-12's stabilator cable.

Happy building,

Just bought the Burroughs BT-33-75D cable tension gauge. Thanks for the help.
