      Comments about Perko Bronze Top Mount Oarlock Sockets:

      I saw the ominous reviews and checked out Perko's web site. The pictures of the item there made the item look to be sand-cast and unburnished as the reviews suggest. I searched the web and found that Shaw & Tenny and Grpaeview also sell top-mount oarlocks. I contacted Grapeview and they said that they sell Perkos and that they are nicely formed & finished, so I ordered a pair. They do look nice. Perhaps Perko has improved quality and Jamestown has older stock?

      The part number for the item I received from Grapeview is Perko #0831DP0PLB

      Rough casting

      By Northern Spy

      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.

        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.
