|The ball bearing windsock frames are a rugged design constructed of a welded steel construction and then a powder coated finish for corrosion protection. They incorporate a two bearing pivoting design for effortless pivoting. These frames are ready to be mounted on a 3/4” female pipe thread for the 8”, 13”, 18” and 24” and a 1” pipe thread for the 36”.|
The frame spins easily and is sensitive to the wind. It is well made. It arrived undamaged, was well packaged and in good time. It was a couple of days later than estimated, but it was ordered over Christmas.
Solid construction, should last a long time. Bearings make it swivel so easily! Well worth the $.
Looks great and can not wait to get it up!
Bought this for my dad, he loved it. Storm blew it away and Im buying him another one!
After a quick nspecting the Ball Bearing Windsock Frames upon receiving it I found the rubber top cap is possibly truly the weakest link for this other than that, seeming great product. When the rubber cap fails it will expose the bearings to eventually leading to bearing failure. I plan to correct this for problem prior to its failure. Other than that, prior to installation this product looked to be well constructed. The wire ties were of poor quality and no extras ones included. The welded structure itself looked to be made well and powder coated.
Yes, it would work with standard 3/4" plumbing fittings.
FAA type L-806 support - those mounted on low mass supporting structures - maximum of 3.0 m (10 ft) mast height. brbr FAA type L-807 support - those mounted on rigid supporting structures - Maximum of 4.8 m (16 ft) height to windsock.
Unfortunately we do not offer any custom embroidery on these wind socks. We only sell them stock, it would need to be embroidered post receipt.
