cable and stuffing-box
The word "cable" is the same in English, i.e., an electrical cable or power line.
The term "prensaestopas" in English is "stuffing-box," i.e., a packed, pressure-tight joint for a cable or rod that moves through an opening. The packing (also known as "stuffing") in the box prevents fluid leakage.
