@JTT,
We did that with our specs.
Which is not to say I'm all so sure.

You can be pretty sure now, Osso. I deleted my "Woodworking" and "Home Improvement" came back.

Fixing, I hope, now.

@JTT,
I tried to say 'tnx' and it was rejected.
Anyway, so far so good.
I'm learning here.

@JTT,
I meant with the pebbles or gravel etc.

Still, I am all for more interest in all this.

1/2 gallon jugs that he fit over the tops of the fence posts and then he takes a torch to melt the plastic until it forms like a coating on the end grain of the posts.

great idea. I was thinking a plastic milk bottle with the handle and spout cut off, just bang a flat head nail in down the side?

Good Australian box or redgum posts will last 80 years here (no treatment necessary). hard to come by now though and more expensive than concrete or treated pine.

The chap who owns the empty house block of land behing my house did some limbing on a big old 100 year old oak tree. He dropped the limbs one friday and went home. I noticed theses limbs about 35 cm (14 inch) diam. several good straight lengths. one length about 8ft the others a bit shorter. real good wood. perfect for a home wood worker.
When he came back to clean up about a fortnight later someone (who shall remain nameless had rustled his wood.

@dadpad,
Could you be more specific? I didn't know you are so antagonistic to me. ****, I'll stop thumbing you up.

Give me a clue about why? You didn't like something I said about Swimpy's yard several years ago?

@ossobuco,
hes being a bad little pad. The plastic bottles are cut so that the bottoms face up and theyre about 3 inches of plastic collar left dfrom the bottle top. This is then jammed down onto the post top and then its hit with a propane burner flame so that the plastic bottle bottom melts and like "Shrink wraps" itself arount the top of the post. WHen it cools and sets, its a perfect seal that keeps rain fromseeping into the cross section of wood at the post top. NOW, thats the only explanation that I can manage. I hope you got it.

Just watch the amount of heat you apply or your hair will burn.

@ossobuco,
I'm not current on practices and remain interested. First time I took my national boards, 9% passed and I wasn't among them. Next time I was. Don't **** with me. I'm in real life humble, as I didn't learn any of this until my forties and can never ever learn all of it, especially not now. But I get to have opinions, given 25 years.

@dadpad,
you can cover your head with fiberglas insulation and then cover that with the plastic bottle. Fire it up and dont forget to send us some pictures.

@ossobuco,
Osso I love you dearly, but when its late in your part of the world your comments and opinions get.... confusing.

I'm not antagonistic to you at all.
