Same here, my first antenna !
I now have a TA53/40 and it works great, easy to work on and use.
Mosley is real proud of their parts along with the handling charge but the
antenna will last a long time.
I just helped a good friend who became a home obtain a TA33jr and he loves it.
Good Dx !

The TA33JR was my very first Yagi antenna back in 1973. It works very well
for its size.
The #41 blocks are metal (for the director and reflector mount). The #44
block is black plastic (for the driven element mount).
Good luck with your TA33JR rebuild project. You will have lots of fun with
