I was at the point of welding a mast band from Stainless but this is much more desired visually and specific.
QUITE HEFTY AND BURNISHED AND POLISHED TO A FINE FINISH. NICE WORKMANSHIP AND WILL LAST FOREVER.
An exquisite, polished piece of bronze marine hardware. Exactly as described and delivered within days. Well done, crew
It is an excellent casting. I found no cracks and no voids. Also a very nice job of polishing. There is slight variations in thickness and straightness but this is consistent with all castings. I was a machinist and know the time a cost of such processes. Therefore I find this item very suitable for it's intended purpose.
