Sundial Setup Directions


Our sundials are designed for ornamental use and give an approximation of time and have been selected to give you years of enjoyment without the aggravation of constant tuning.

HOW TO SET YOUR SUNDIAL

Most of our sundials consist of two parts: a face or plane and a gnomon or shadow arm. The gnomon is attached to the face with the screws provided. The gnomon rises at an angle from the center of the face. The sundial should be aligned with the gnomon pointing north. Noon is the best time for setting or checking the sundial. At solar noon, the shadow of the gnomon falls directly on the North-South line. These sundials are designed for an average latitude of 40 degrees and show the approximate sun time which may not necessarily correspond to the actual time for your location. Sundials should be mounted or rested on a level surface.

CLEANING INSTRUCTIONS

To clean your sundial, use a nonabrasive detergent and water with a cloth, sponge or soft brush. The simulated weathered bronze finish cannot be brightened by polishing. This painted finish should retain its present appearance for many years without special attention.

For brass and bronze sundials use a quality metal polish to help hold the shine. You may spray with a protective polyurethane or similar product to prevent oxidation, or allow it to naturally age into a pleasant verdigris finish.
