Rough casting

By Northern Spy

from Carlisle, PA

About Me Casual/ Recreational

Pros

  • Heavy Bronze
  • Smooth Socket

Cons

  • Rough Casting
  • Shallow Countersinks

Best Uses

    Comments about Perko Bronze Top Mount Oarlock Sockets:

    Catalog text says "burnished" - this is misleading, casting is very rough and needs to be dressed with a file before use. Countersinks are very shallow and need to be deepened to accept #8 or #10 screws. On plus side, inside of socket is well-finished, and it doesn't take long to fix the problems. Overall reasonable value for the price.

    Suitable for thier functional use

    Pros

    • Solid Construction

    Cons

    • Tight shaft

    Best Uses

    • Good non-corrosive lock

    Comments about Perko Bronze Top Mount Oarlock Sockets:

    Yes, they are rough. After all this is a sand casting. It can be honed down & polished if you want the "princess look". You will pay the higher price for labor. My only concern was different size oarlock shafts, which vary from one to the next. I bought two pair and there is a disparity from one to the next. Manufacturer needs better quality control. I will hone out and polish to suit my needs. Overall a very acceptable oarlock for the price.

    Not all that bad

    By Capt. Jim

    from Wisconsin

    Verified Reviewer

    Comments about Perko Bronze Top Mount Oarlock Sockets:

    I ordered two pairs of these oarlock sockets and found them to be more satisfactory than other reviews had led me to believe. The castings are not "perfect", but appear to be rugged and very appropriate for all but the most elegant rowing skiffs.

    Very unfinished

    By Alex the boatbuilder

    from Knife River, Minnesota

    Verified Reviewer

    Comments about Perko Bronze Top Mount Oarlock Sockets:

    Yes, these oarlock sockets are bronze and they do fit a 1/2" shank oarlock. That's really all the praise that can be given. They are poorly cast and, aside from the shaft hole, they are not machined at all. Since they are bronze you can dress them up with a belt sander and end up with an acceptable piece. Better plan on doing some work.
