This is not a misprint, this is a 130 pound declination housing, made of T-6 heat treated
cast aluminum. This casting is not machined, and is about 40" long, about 9.5" OD (not counting
the polar flange), and has a 6.5" bore (for shafts up to 6"OD). The polar flange is 11.5" in
diameter. This is about the size of a Byers Series IV declination casting, but this is not a Byers

I am willing to ship this item, but expect about $100-250 for shipping, plus a $35 packing fee. Local pickup from
the San Jose cA area is recommended. This casting will not be available after this week.

The cost of casting this large of a declination housing has been quoted as high as $3500 by a local
foundry. This is a one time offering, when it's gone, it's gone.
