Eye-Catching, Wind-Driven Sign
You can put any kind of personal touch you want on this new handcrafted "wind-powered" sign.
  "It makes a great lawn ornament because you get to choose what it looks like, and because it's almost always in motion so you really notice it," says Cathy Kratzke, Perham, Minn.
  The circular sign is made from powder-coated steel and measures 24 in. wide by 28 in. high. The moving object inside the top half of the ring is driven by an 8-in. dia. plastic propeller, which drives a shaft connected to the object. Your name is stenciled in below the object.
  The company offers more than 60 different standard moving objects. Examples include a man in a boat catching a fish that both rock back and forth; a tractor whose rear wheel rotates continuously; and a bucking horse and cowboy that both bob up and down..
  However, you can customize both the moving object and a football-shaped scene below it with whatever you want by sending in photos.
  A standard moving sign sells for $99; customized signs cost up to $150. A replacement football-shaped plate sells for $25.
