This has probably been asked before but I cannot find the answer. Can you mount the baby bob on the h-14 mast. It has a single large wheel incased in the 4 3/4" metal body. It has a single hole in the center but the bob does not have the correct hardware to mount. Do they make hardware for this?

Yes, the Baby Bob 30115 includes a second kit 30116 which enables attachment to the original mast head. It is simply 4 short screws that are drilled and tapped into the casting.

I just did it yesterday. A #20 drill bit and a 10-32 tap is all you need. Center the bob on the mast head with a C clamp and mark the four holes (two on each side) with a sharpie. I used a center punch to keep the drill bit from "walking". Drill with light, even pressure so you don't force the drill through and crack the sheave. Put a drop of oil on the tap before cutting the threads. I also used a thread locker (Locktite) on the screws. The whole process took 30 minutes.
