How to Forge a Portable Fence post (Barb wire post)..

Recommended Posts

Here is a filming session I did awhile ago and figured it might be interesting for others to see..  In the olden days they sold Barb wire fencing posts that would be driven into the ground and then moved around as need be..   

I found one years ago and copied the main idea into my rope boundry for when I am demonstrating..  They are super handy and can be sized for any given rope or wire size..  I used old wrought iron silo hoops which only had a few left.. The tapered part that goes in the earth was not covered.. 

I make these both with a wedge in the weld or just folded as in this example.. 

Anyhow, just handy to know and have..

Yet another great video. Something similar was used during WW1 in Europe.

I knew how to make them from doing it in the past, took a refresher watching the video. Besides that I just love the sound of your hammering, to me it's soothing.

Thanks..    :) :) :)

Thanks..  yes they did..   History buffs will certainly recognize them..    I don't do the middle bends or loops as not needed for what I do..
