High Silicone Bronze Alloy.
The alloy we use for this premium Post is exceptionally strong, weather resistant, and beautiful. This excellent marine grade corrosion resistant bronze alloy is as strong as stainless steel but the golden chestnut color of the metal is more beautiful, needs no maintenance, and blends perfectly with the brass and copper colors of weathervane figures while aging gracefully to a fine verdigris patina. It is the perfect post choice for weathervanes to be heirlooms. High grade 304 stainless steel spindles are embedded in the bronze posts and expertly TIG welded permanently in place. These posts are the absolute best in the weathervane business.
Bearing-tip Spindles- Some companies supply their spindles with a squared flat tip. Experience has shown the squared edges can rub and then cut a weathervanes spindle tube from the inside. Ferro spindle Bearing-tips are precision ground and polished to a radius to avoid this problem as well as reduce bearing surface allowing trouble free, smooth rotating action.
