  1. I have a unique piece of hand-sawn hardwood that weighs 15 ibs, which I'd like to make into a weathervane suspended from under my roof eave. The primary stumbling block is finding the right hardware to allow it to pivot properly: I've so far purchased a 3/4" swivel eye snap hook, rated at 30 lbs load limit, and a 1/4" x 2 1/2' lag screw eye, both Marine grade; the screw eye would screw into the top of the wood, now I need the right piece of hardware to screw into the rafter under the eave. The swivel eye snap hook has a closed loop, as does the screw eye, so whatever hardware I use for the upper mount has to have an open hook rather than a closed loop. Any alternatives to these items, as well as other advice, would be welcome. I'm a retired carpenter/maintenance-man by trade. Thank you...
