- THE MOST COMMON POST SIZE IS – 3/4″ D x 28″ L post with 3/8″ D x 10″ L spindle.
- The Ferro Post & Spindle- is simply the best in the world! Made of high grade corrosion resistant and high yield strength Stainless Steel. Featuring embedded and welded spindles with bullet shaped bearing tips. They are zero-maintenance and the longest lasting post available.
- 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.
- Perma-pinned or Welded Spindles- The Ferro post and spindle system is innovative. The spindle is embedded a full 1″ or more into the post, then the two are permanently attached together. Not one of these posts has ever come loose!
- 5/16″ spindles are permanently pinned together. 3/8″ spindles are pinned for lighter vanes and welded for heavy vanes. 1/2″ spindles are always welded.
