Instructions for the Classic Armillary

Made from powder-coated steel, the Classic Armillary can be used inside or out. If used indoors, protect the surface to prevent scratching.


The Armillary is made up of five pieces.

  • Base unit
  • Bands that make up the globe
  • Arrow
  • Fletching (feathers)
  • 1" diameter ball

Place the base on a flat surface.

Take the small, 1-inch ball and screw it onto the base. Do not over-tighten.

Screw the globe/bands onto the ball, turning clockwise.

Unfold the bands that make up the globe so that they form a circle.

Screw the arrow piece to the top and the feather piece to the bottom of the diagonal pole running through the globe.
