Re: Lag screws vs everything else...

I was eyeballing the wire rope segments at HD, the kind with crimped loops at either end. They sell them in short lengths with loops on each end. Don't how strong they are but looks really useful for weird attachment scenarios like yours... This is what I’ve finally gotten around to doing for this ...

Re: Lag screws vs everything else...

Nice, but pricey. I do the mule-tape, water knot and flat washer method. And that site looks cheaper than Amazon. Is the water knot more secure than a square? I did a test run of my shade mule tape this weekend, and I am not feeling confident at all with mule loops. Thinking about running out to HD...

Re: Lag screws vs everything else...

Sweet Cheeseits, what are y’all building that you need 60 anchors? I’d put up hundreds of square feet of shade with a dozen at most. There is some serious overthinking round these parts. It's overkill, on purpose. However, we do have a couple thousand square feet of tall shade structures which will...

Re: Impact Drivers

Sounds like a lot of us will be out there with the M18 batteries, I'll be happy to charge for anyone who needs (6:45 & B, I think).

Really looking forward to using my new big-ass M18 fuel 1/2" wrench and 1/2"x18" lags because it's definitely overkill that will last for years to come.

Re: Lag screws vs everything else...

Nice, but pricey. I do the mule-tape, water knot and flat washer method. And that site looks cheaper than Amazon. Yeah, I couldn't stomach the price. Ended up going to HD in 3 trips to get 60x 1"x3/8" 3-link chain segments. They were super nice about cutting so much and we had great conversations. ...

Re: Lag screws vs everything else...

I was looking for a solution other than chain links to use with lag screws, because the hardware stores where I live (NYC) wouldn't make all the cuts for me. I settled on climbing anchors, the ones rock climbers use to attach their ropes to a cliff in case they fall. They worked really well last ye...
