Hi,
I just heard the cruel reality, the owner of Channel Master has stopped making polar mount for my 1m20.
I decided to change mine after almost 20 years of loyal service but NOW I have to save him from rust for an other 20 years!

An inspection regime is appropriate for satellite installations - at least yearly to check for the very problem you have now discovered.

Clean it up and see if anyone locally does powder coating.

Ask remlap he restored a cm polar mount, there's a thread on the forum about it.

A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.

Living near the coast doesn't do the mount any favours, you might be better off stripping back to bare metal and zinc anodising everything.

I put up a brand new CM Polar Mount last year. For a week ago i took it down and had to take it apart as it has already started to rust.
Now it's all sanded and repainted , i dont dare to think how it would be after 20 years without this repaint.
My Laminas Polar Mount is hot galvenized and it's how it shall be done, not just crappy factory paint .

Get a welder to cut and weld the required parts.
