Pintles -- Bronze
Castings look a bit rough and have inconsistent wall thickness. They should work ok though.
I was delighted to find these as almost everything else on the market is heavier than my need, too pricey for my blood, or both. I give them 4 stars since they are just a touch rough. One or the pintles didn’t fit in either gudgeon but I was alerted to that fact by the store before they shipped as they were the only set available at the time. So 6 stars for the Wooden Boat Store! As it turned out I ended up making a vertical bottom gudgeon to better fit the wine glass transom on my wherry. I had a piece of bronze available. In any case, the fit could have been corrected with a file and ten minutes of attention. The pieces are sand cast with a fair amount of “draw” left in and only machined for the screw holes, sanded and polished on the outside. The hole is as cast so a bit rough but after all, this is not a sewing machine.
Very robust, beautiful Pintles. Better than I expected. Very happy with my purchase! Would definitely buy again!
A good piece of hardware, and great service during a pandemic.
