I'm wondering if anyone has any knowledge or information about this weathervane. It came with the purchase of our house. It installs by fitting inside the chimney. When a fire is lit, smoke comes through the weathervane as the wind spins it around. Unfortunately, we had to remove



it in order to install a top mounted damper. It's copper. Should I scrap it or does it have any value?

If it is copper it definitely has value as scrap.
I would also not really call it a weather vane. It is a draft inducing wind directional chimney cap.
Or a DIWDCC for short! It weighs maybe 10 lbs. at the most. So that's maybe 30 bucks or so.

I would list it on Ebay or Craigslist and see what happens.

I think it's pretty cool too and I'm sorry to see it go. But I had a horrendous draft coming through the fireplace so we needed the new top mounted damper.

But I think I'd rather put this thing on Craigslist than scrap it. Seems like a shame and a waste.
