neutral  Cilian O'Tuama: that would correspond to "washer" on its own
2 mins

neutral  Bernd Runge: You're right, Cilian. And, the slip washer is in following context: Slip washer onto ... So, not really a valuable source. ;-); @W.Schoeniger: manchmal hilft auch schon eine Liste von Wörtern, um ein Begriffsfeld abzuleiten und den Kontext herzustellen.

agree  Schtroumpf: Bei solchen Listen ist man doch froh, dass jemand einen slip washer überhaupt schon mal gesehen/gelesen/gehört hat :-) Kann so vieles sein... http://www.dougsfamily.com/spgm-1.4.2/index.php?spgmGal=Bike...

  -> Danke Wiebke. Habe übrigens bei unseren Konstrukteuren im Unternehmen nachgefragt. Nach deren Meinung kann ein "slip washer" ohne Kontext oder Zecihnung entweder ein "washer" sein der gleitet oder der ein Gleiten verhindern soll. Ohne Kontext schwierig.
