What fun it has been to create some "techno celestial" weather vanes! Our "Cosmic Arrow" has a swell-bodied point and tail pierced by a large ring of copper tubing. The "Cosmic Arrow" normally comes with either a set of standard directionals or a single large copper globe, but in the photo above you will see a coordinating single globe as the "N" Globe Directional, requested by the architect. We liked the idea so much, that we now offer it as a possibility with all our contemporary vanes. If you are interested in this kind of modern design for your house, please also look at our "Stargazer", "Spheres", "Rainbow", "Jetson", and "Crescent".

This style was popular from the 1700's right up to the Victorian era, and is also very striking with contemporary vanes.
Diagram A - Headblock only
(Old Diagram #1)
Traditional mounting of a weather vane into the solid headblock of a cupola, tower, turret or gazebo, or into the ridgepole of a roof.
This is the "old fashioned" traditional way of mounting a weather
vane. It is still suitable today for smaller vanes up to 36" wide. Our
basic 28 1/2" rod allows for at least 8" - 9" of rod to be
wedged and caulked into a solid headblock or ridgepole, and 16" - 20"
of rod exposed above the apex of roof.
Diagram B - Headblock & Brace
(Old Diagram #4)
A preferred traditional mount into the solid headblock of a cupola, tower, turret or gazebo, or into the ridgepole of a roof using a brace for extra strength.
Prepare your roof ahead with this headblock and brace system, for an easy and very secure mount. This mount is suitable for any size weather vane. Our basic 28 1/2" brass rod allows for at least 8" - 9"of rod inside the roof, and 16" - 20" of rod exposed above the apex of the roof. A nail is used to pin the rod to the brace. Larger sized vanes will need proportionally heavier and longer rods.
