Turnbuckle and wheel backstay adjuster, Inner Forestay adjuster or rigid vang - link

I have a stainless steel turnbuckle and wheel type stay adjuster or solid vang for sale on eBay. Might be just the thing someone on the YBW forum needs, so I'm highlighting it here.
It's pretty heavy duty; way over the top for my 10m cutter where it served as the vang for, I think, three decades. I replaced it with a rigid vang that I can adjust from the cockpit. I imagine it's sized for a boat of around 14 to 16m. I have a smaller one on my inner forestay and it can do alarming things to my mast and runners if I wind it on too tight.
If you are familiar with these types of turnbuckle and wheel adjusters/vangs and can fill in details, I'm sure that someone on YBW would appreciate it.
Pictures and description on the ebay site. I'm back in the UK 15th March and can take measurements or specific photos if you message me via ebay or on here
I also have an unused 100L plastimo flexible water tank, a Vetus raw water strainer and some other items left over from my refit for sale on eBay
