The cord was found along a roadside construction zone. Lengths of this cord were used to guide large concrete placement machines. A series of vertical rods with adjustable outriggers supports a length of this cord. A guide wand on the machine follows the string ensuring that the shape of the concrete pour matches the exact shape of the stretched cord.
Size is 8" (203 mm) inside circumference about right for an adult hand - no natural stretch to this one due to the high density cord.
A bit of this cord remains in my collection for custom work.
