Annoying things that happen whilst fencing.

Pointless thread really , but 2 things that come to mind really annoy me, first when your stapleling upand one flicks off into the undergrowth on first hit with hammer, replace it only for it to happen again. Happens a lot with Chestnut I find. The other is when your tying off netting or plain wire and an end springs/flicks on to your fingernail, it really hurts and seems to happen to me all the time.

 

I'm sure there are plenty of other little occurances that irritate- feel feee to add your own.

When people come and hold you up chatting. Not everyone, just the sort that makes a mental cloud descend when you catch them out your eye corner heading your way.

 

When a fence line is 2 ft longer than the net. Solution go big time with a huge roll and dispenser.

 

Solution to Matt an Tepapas staple issues. Stockade. Both systems on the shopping list.

Actually the funny thing is, most of them aren't one time fencers at all, but landowners who struggle on year after year doing **** fencing with nothing more than a drivall and some fencing pliers!

My Dad has had his own farm for over 35 years, only last year did he go and get a set of Hayes wire strainers and a gripple tool!

Staples stabbing in your fingers and under your nails when your picking them up out of the bucket.

 

I've got a splinter (it's really more like half a strainer...bloody huge) nearly to the second knuckle under a nail since last Sunday.  I'd rather have a gaping flesh wound so it looked like it felt!

I tend to find if your post and railing if you've got a rail that's running behind a holly or anything prickly and you've just wedged yourself round the back of it with prickles in your **** and your back, balancing the rail on one foot and the other end just being held in place with the tip of your little finger and thumb ....and the nail guns always run out of nails
