    Miguel,
    I have seen some compression struts with a clamped on reinforcement at the wire attach holes. My guess it was for a lighter gauge attachment area at the drag wires. Sorry I don't have any more details. The wings we built had them and they were reinstalled.

    Being that compression struts are fairly beefy items (and of welded one-piece construction), there should be a whole plethora of them available complete. They may need shimming when fitting...I had a whole host of shims between the compression strut feet and the spars when I rebuilt my wings.

    How many do you need? I may have some in the pile. They are pretty simple if I don't have any that are serviceable and anyone who can weld them for you should be able to help you make some "owner produced" ones. I need to do a sketch of the dimensions.
