Re: Rebar/stake questions

I use big fender washers and put my 12" nails through them it gives me more surface to pry them out of the ground with. The nails have worked for several years now with a a single fail. They pound in much easier than rebar.

Re: I'm looking for the branding guy.

This was REAL branding, glowing iron and sizzling flesh, permanent brand. I wish we could find the guy again.

I cannot believe you people you claim to be for "Thread Equality" and then you use derogatory terms like "Low-hit Threads". Everyone knows the correct term is "Special-needs Threads" or just plain "Special Threads".
