Hi Fred,

It looks like a perfectly standard "Fine Offset" (WH-1081, etc.). Both sensors are available from Maplin at £10 for the vane plus £5 for the rain sensor (which together should give free shipping).

Normally, damage would be excluded from a warranty, but if you paid anything like the price currently quoted on Amazon (cf. Maplin or Clas Ohlson) then it might be worth trying for replacements under warranty. But I believe Amazon (not sure about their independent sellers) will normally expect a full return for a refund/replacement, as they don't keep "spares".

Cheers, Alan.

Hi ALLY
I am still waiting for the wind vane from Marlins
as they are out of stock apparently .
Must have had some high winds through the country.
Cheers
