I bought this sundial for my dad for Christmas. I just received it in the mail a few days ago, and I wondered why it was in such a small box. I opened the box to find that I needed to assemble EVERYTHING. I read the instructions (that were extremely confusing), looked at my parts, then studied the little 2-inch picture they gave me. Half an hour later, I figured out that they sent screws instead of bolts, and that was the reason that my sundial kept falling apart. After trying to assemble it multiple times, I looked at my arrow (the stick part of it) and noticed that the gold paint was being scraped off because of the cast iron, and the paint on the cast iron was chipped off! I may not know a lot about cast iron but what I do know is that it's not supposed to break off like that.
This is definitely not a gift that I'm going to give anyone I care about this Christmas, and it was a waste of my time and money. I wish it had better instructions and all the parts were correct, and that all the parts didn't get messed up. Maybe then I would like it better. Overall this product is not worth the $51.00! Maybe $8.

I purchased this as an X-mas gift for my wife and she loves it. We're using it on top of a bookcase for decoration, and none of our guests has failed to mention it when they see it for the first time.

I'm not sure if it is variations in manufacturing or some other issue, but I didn't encounter any of the problems putting this armillary together that some reviewers have run into. I have to agree that the instructions aren't very clear, but I was able to muddle through assembly in about 30 minutes (as quietly as I could, on X-mas Eve). The decorative screws it comes with seem perfectly adequate and the whole thing had a good solid feel once I got it together. I have to admit that, based on the negative reviews, there were moments during the construction I was worried that it would fall apart with a touch, but once it was complete each part supported the others to make for a stable whole.

One thing I discovered that I didn't notice in the instructions is that the central ring has a couple of divots in the bottom where the working part of the sphere should be attached to the base. I found this out the hard way when I tried to attach it the first time and it slipped right off. This is fine for our current purposes, but my wife has expressed an interest in moving the armillary to the yard in the Summer, and I worry that when trying to use this piece as an actual sundial we will have difficulty adjusting it properly since, near as I can tell, our latitude is different from the two default options.

It's a nice, solid, LARGE piece, and the contrast between the painted iron and the brass makes the ornamentation pop attractively. I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking to add one of these to their decor.

Although it is made of heavy metal (cast iron), the quality of the parts is not good. Poorly manufactured with tolerances that make it look lopsided.
Also, there were no instructions, not even a picture to reference.
I had to bring up the internet photo from Amazon to figure out how it went together. Not as simple as it may appear.
The brass arrow bar was bent and had to be straightened.

Not a good experience

The sundial was heavy and sturdy, but the finish was poor (already chipped off in places), the brass arrow was bent, and the screw holes did not line up. After reading other reviews I was keeping my fingers crossed that I would recieve a "good" one, but I did not. I will be returning this item and scramble to find another xmas gift.

It's a very tasteful piece. However, it could be made with a slight higher quality material (I realize cost is an important factor here), the neck broke as I hand tightend the dial to the base. So be careful not to apply too much pressure to the adjustment screw.

This was a replacement for one lost in a recent tornado. It is more impressive than the former, but its finish is lacking, as it has already begun to rust. The shipment time was super.

a total inferior product NOT WORTH the $70.00 I paid for it. No picture, no instructions they sent a long bolt and two washers I have NO idea where it goes. The metal piece with the roman nummerals came broken in half. The arrow was bent also. It will not hold together with the metal part that is broken in half. Totally disappointed with product and was so looking forward to getting it.
