    Anyone ever see any wind caps like these? They are clay, but appear to be on copper vents in this case - at the top of a MT in Vermont, so I assume they do the job for wind!

    (note: this post is also for confirming that pics will now display as thumnails, hopefully keeping the board a bit cleaner).

    Hi Craig

    I've seen caps like these, but in Europe (Germany and Austria to be exact), but the one's I saw looked to be mostly attached to the top of masonry chimneys. Of course, there could have been clay tile, or copper/steel liner pipe that I couldn't see from a speeding train ;-)

    These look similar to chimney caps I've seen on Nantucket. Try doing a web search for "Terra Cotta Chimney Caps". Apparently there are a number of manufacturers, though I didn't see an example of one exactly like this.
