    Its all in my book.
    Tried breaking it up into smaller portions, but even that was too big.
    John Morris has the drawings of my wind vane. All you have to do is convince him to post them, as he promised.

    Enough, already!

    If you think that, why on earth did you bump the thread with your post? Are you just here to cause trouble?

    This IS a discussion on wind vanes. Someone aksed me to post the drawings.I tried "Too big" it said .So John offered to post them for me , if I sent then to him. So I did , twice. If you don't want to see windvane drawings on how to do it affordably, then dont come here. Go blow $thousands on a commercially made one ,but dont try deny those who cant ,valuable info.

    Are you in the business of selling grossly overpriced commercially made ones, and don't want anyone to know the altrnatives?

    Wow ,Finally got it working. 1/16th of an inch clearance on bearings is best for light airs.
    You have two possible adjustments ,the for and aft space between the wind vane shaft and the trim tab shaft (I found 1 1/2 inch works well) and the position of the bolt connecting the two. If it is in line with the rudder axis, you get zero feedback ,behind the rudder axis and you get negative feedback, best to prevent over steering. Ahead of the rudder axis and you get positive feed back ,lots of over steering.

    Wow. Well done.
    Here's how to display your images:

    Edit your post above and insert [IMG] immediately before and [/IMG] immediately after the text address of each image.
    This one seems to be 82.21kB, and obviously isn't too large for the forum. How did you manage it Brent?

    Edit:
    Like this, but without the letter X

    I emailed them to John Morris and he emailed smaller versions back tome, so I copied and pasted them here.
    Thanks John.

    He's obviously a man of many talents - or one with lots of clever friends.
