    Default Weather Vane

    My first attempt at a weather vane. My son helped me put it up today and of course there is not even a breath of a breeze so I don't know how smoothly it operates yet. We'll see...Weather Vanecloseup.jpgWeather Vanestandingby.jpg

    I cut it out of 12 gauge hot rolled steel. Used 3/4 inch galvanized pipe and a pipe cap. Bought the roof mount and used 3/4" steel rod and 2 ball bearings. Hasn't been even a little breeze all danged day so I still don't know how well it actually works...
