English term or phrase: fender washer
Se trata de una carretilla elevadora

"Mount the rail with a bolt, fender washer, and bushing, as shown in ..."
CCW
Spanish translation:arandela grande
Explanation:
From what I have seen, it doesn't necessarily have anything to do with "fenders" as in the previous suggestion:

Fender Washer Flat washer made from low carbon steel/minimal physical properties (http://www.masterproducts.com/product.html)

A.: According to a dictionary of etymology (word origins), a fender is something that protects by keeping other things off. The word actually dates back to 1615 and comes from the Middle English word fendour, which means defender. The fender washer is nothing more than a washer that protects the surface of an object (http://www.mindlesscrap.com/stumpme/04-01.htm)

The other things I have been able to find out: a) they are also called "penny washers" (British term) and b) they are bigger than ordinary washers, because most texts refer to "big," "oversized," etc.

In some cases, the head of the screw is enough to prevent the turnbuckle from turning. If not, an oversized washer (penny washer to the Brits, fender washer to the Yanks) may be needed (http://www.briontoss.com/wwwboard/messages/4597.html)

screw (probably oval head as most marine hardware is countersunk for this profile)with an oversize (fender) washer and a nyloc nut. If you run into a problem ...

In the pictures that I have seen, they look like ordinary washers, so I would suppose that the main difference is size. Therefore, unless someone can come up with a more specific term, I would suggest you could just call them "arandelas grandes".

Hope it helps.

roldana de defensa


Explanation:
Es obvio que "washer", es una roldana, (he usado antes el término) si estan hablando de un ensamblado. Y "fender" están estas opciones: defensa, espolón o guardafango.

Espero que te sea de alguna ayuda.
