Spanish term or phrase: caja de hilos
From specifications for oilfield equipment:

"Conexión roscada 2-3/8 pulgadas EUE caja de hilos ó cross over que integre este tipo de conexión."

The "cross over" I understand as:

"A short subassembly used to enable two components with different thread types or sizes to be connected. " from

So an alternative type of thread adapter?
