Looking for a Super Steel Sealant 2!

| | | | | | | | | | | | |

I don't know if my previous question went through. I MIG and TIG steel sculptures. I am looking for advice on cleaners and sealers for ferrous metals. I have used cold patinas (I am unable to use a torch right now -- this may change), and Permalac with a wax coating. The result indoors and out has been rust. I can accept a certain amount of rust, but I would rather not.

Weathervane Question

| | |

I am making a weathervane and don't really understand how to make it adjustable! Obviously, when I take it to the site I'll need to be able to adjust the arm to North, but how do I make it so I can fix it in that position? I don't know why, but I seem to have some mental block about how to make this work! Any help/drawings/advice would be greatly appreciated - I've been searching shops for them to have a play with but nowhere seems to sell them anymore. Thanks!

So I'm getting married to a Godlike man, but the date is not yet set. Should save us some stress and money having to plan ahead, but there seems to be a bit of difficulty. We planned out wedding theme to be based off of A Song of Ice and Fire book series by George R.
