French term or phrase: FOUREAU TENSION DE CHAINE
This term appears in a list of spare parts for conveyors. I can't seem to find foureau, but the term would begin with chain tensioner ...
If anyone has any ideas, I'd be very grateful.

agree  Tony M: Might well be this; OED gives this as one meaning of quill: hollow rotating sleeve of metal etc., esp. one used to transmit the drive from a motor to a concentrically mounted axle.
