 Steering Wheels
These beautifully crafted wheels are designed to provide years of service and
pleasure to the boat owner who appreciates fine workmanship. For yachts,
work boats or fishing boats, all wheels are individually handmade from
thoroughly seasoned stock and the highest quality marine-grade bronze and
aluminum. Teak is carefully selected for matching grain and color. Rims and
felloes are rigidly secured by stainless fastenings with holly bungs.

     Forward Mounted Rack and Pinion Steerers for Inboard Rudders
Edson's Forward Mounted Rack and Pinion Steerers are designed for boats
up to 48' with inboard rudders that have limited space aft of the rudderpost.
These rugged and compact steerers are usually found on the more
traditionally designed vessels where rudder feedback is desired.
The #347-9 Steerer will accommodate boats up to 38' with 1.8 turns through
80 of rudder travel. The #347-14 Steerer should be used on boats 38' to 48'
in length and has three turns of the wheel through 90 of rudder travel. The
rudderpost diameter determines the size of rack and pinion steerers for
inboard rudders. Refer to the selection guide below.

             Aft Mounted Rack and Pinion Steerers for Inboard Rudders
Edson's Rack and Pinion Steerers are designed for boatowners who require more cockpit space and rudder feedback and a safe,
strong, dependable unit. These aft mounted Rack and Pinion Steerers are designed specifically for vessels that have a minimum
of 12" (30.5 cm) of space aft of the rudderpost and where cockpit design requires the wheel to be mounted close to the
rudderpost. These steerers take up less than one third of the cockpit space of a tiller, yet the precision cast gears provide the
helmsman with all the "feel" and feedback generally associated with a tiller.

WHEN ORDERING: Worm steerer installations must be well designed and well thought out from
all standpoints. The system is mounted at 90 to the rudderpost and is rigid at this point. Should
you require a different angle to your wheel, refer to Edson's #679 Shaft Universal. The #629 Self-
Aligning Bearing supplied with the gear must be well bolted down to a timber or strong
moldment. lt is recommended that the top of the wheel rim be 31" (79 cm) to 33" (84 cm) up
from the cockpit floor. This will allow you to stand beside the
wheel without reaching down to it, and will put the wheel at a                         WORM STEERER ORDERING GUIDE

Edson's Meteor Worm Steerer. This steerer was originally
designed for Kaiser Wilhelm's Yacht Meteor which was
designed to race against Britannia. The Meteor is a rugged
steerer with "twin" arms for optimum strength and is
designed for boats in the 45-65 foot (13.7-19.8 meter) range
with room both forward and aft of the rudderpost. Wt. 128 lbs

Edson's Robinson Worm Steerer. This steerer features the
same rugged construction and "twin" arms as the Meteor
Steerer but has larger gears to give you more turns of the
wheel hard-over to hard-over. The Part No. 380 Steerer is
designed with the "worm" on the aft side of the rudderpost                  Part #380-2
and requires a minimum of 35" (89cm) aft rudderpost. It is
recommended for boats in the 65-85 foot (19.8-25.9 meter)
range. Wt. 230 lbs (104.4 kg).

Robinson Worm Steerer. This is virtually identical in design to
the Part No. 380 Steerer with the major difference being that
the "worm" is located forward of the rudderpost. This makes
the Part No. 382 ideal for boats with limited space aft of the
rudderpost and is recommended for boats in the 65-85 foot
(19.8-25.9 meter) range. Wt. 230 lbs (104.4 kg).

                                                       Bronze Stuffing Box
Combines a rudderpost bearing with an above-the-waterline stuffing box for rudderpost sizes ranging from 1" (2.5 cm)
diameter to 41/2" (11.4 cm). We recommend fiberglassing the stuffing box/bearing to the top of the tubing when the
rudderpost is in place. This can be done easily using alternating layers of fiberglass mat and cloth. This makes the post a
structural bearing and will help carry rudder loads with minimal friction. Custom sizes are available on request, but allow
additional time.

                                                        Mariners have been using leather for centuries to prevent

                                                        and outperform materials of lesser quality, like rubber or

Traditional Bronze Housemarkers
    Edson's traditional Bronze House Markers are an excellent
way to commemorate any occasion and add a rugged touch of
bronze to any surface. When allowed to age naturally, each
House Marker will acquire a classic patina.
    Cast from hand-carved patterns, these plaques represent six
traditional East Coast sailing vessels from the late 19th and
early 20th century as well as a Striped Bass, a classic lobsterboat
and a nautical compass rose. Each is modeled to-scale, in full
relief and shows details of the actual vessel or fish.
    The Edson/Anbar Foundry has hand cast and tumbled the
bronze plaques to a low-lustre finish ready to be engraved to
your specifications. Bronze mounting screws are included and
engraving is available in Roman typeface for an additional
charge. Please include clear engraving instructions with your
order. 15 Characters Maximum, including spaces. Please allow
3-4 weeks for delivery. Engraving charges extra.

                        n a fine example of "Yankee Ingenuity",
                      I Jacob Edson invented the diaphragm
                       pump, and in 1859 established The Edson
                        Corporation in Boston, Massachusetts to
                         manufacture and sell his pump. He
                         continued to invent a wide range of
                          marine products which resulted in
                           significant growth; and in the mid 1930's
                            the company moved to expanded facilities
                             in New Bedford, MA. The Edson
                              Corporation is
                      now recognized as
                      one of the oldest
                         businesses in
