Looking at puuting a sundail in the front garden.
what sort of price am I looking at?

I am aware that I must get a sundail that is made for my location
which is. -3345'34" (St Marys NSW)

Regards,
Mitchell

I don't know how much Sundials cost but you are right about the
location, I brought an antique [1710] sundial from England when I
emigrated 30 years ago and it goes backwards!

They made one on Ground Force (Ch.7) this week. They appeared to use a
small concrete paver, engraved the radii and circle somehow (while I was
elsewhere channel surfing), then glued in a brass triangle and sat it on
top of a gaudy plinth. I don't know whether its purpose is functional or
merely decorative.

That sundial would have only been decorative. Unless of course you happen
to
live at -45

I can't remember if they made a comment that it must also be pointed true
north.......
