    fixed knot versus squre knot

    They dont seem to hold up as well to livestock, once they start getting pushed down the whole fence folds down together.

    I hate hinge knotts. I hate striping them. I hate how they look after a couple years of livestock pressure, or branches/trees falling on them.

    Wood is outdated

    Looks pretty good. I think it would make alot of sense for people to switch to metal, I set alot of posts in holes full of water.

    No it's fine. I am curious still what diameter pipes you ate using for your H post

    I meant that question for Oregon fencer, I wouldn't be against metal posts if I could find a good source of pipes and clientele that wanted them. (I like welding, and my 1 employ is a certified welder) People like the look of the wood around here. And most of my fences are small fences around peoples houses, fences for like 2 goats or a horse, that sort of thing. What size pipes do you use for the H post?
  6. Electrified offsets are the typical way to keep animals off of a fence. I get how chicken wire could be dangerous, but overall I would guess it will not cause any problems. Your neighbor sounds difficult to deal with.

    gripples

    I didn't take pictures, just wondering if I had done something wrong. The second one that broke I had twisted the ends around as a fail safe, but it that didn't matter. And it failed while packing up the truck after finishing the fence, on like a 200 ft barb fence

    gripples

    I just started using gripples for my h posts, I have used them 2 days and had 2 different failures. Not sure if it me or the gripples. The first on it just slipped out, might not have set or something. The second one today, the wire broke where the gripple punches the wire

    Gas powered pounder

    That's about 50 k less then I had assumed. Parts are probably hard to get to. I am thinking a 50 ho tractor with a post pounder. Those fencing machines look cool but a tractor is more versatile.

    But what does one of those cost? I am hoping to get a tractor with a pounder later this summer. That's the problem with starting a business I have to slowly build up.

    Gas powered pounder

    Yeah, I have a 12 lbs sledge with a plate and a 40 lbs oversized t post pounder for up to 5 in would posts. We pre drill the holes so they are about .5 to 1 inch smaller then the post
