  1. Work that was a very good trick on that fence I will always remember that I know a couple of places that I can already take care of that I think you again

  2. Clever, but I don’t know how safe this is. Getting sliced open by a hidden t-post isn’t fun or cheap. How would you make that sharp top safer? Wouldn’t it be better to just suck it up and use a deep set wood post there?

  3. Do you have a video of fencing the ravine? This video is very helpful but my ditch is much steeper than that and I'd like to see how you do it

  4. Interesting idea, we always just put a double H brace at the bottom and break the run into two seperate sections.

  5. You can also bridle a second T post to your deadman with wire, or by welding, if you would need something more substantial than the wire stay to hold it down. Easiest to dig a small hole first, so that the intersection of the posts is sub-grade. We don't use T posts, but do this often with pipe posts or even timber posts. Nice tip and video Mr. Luke!

  6. Did you use a post driver, a sledge hammer or both to drive those posts in on the angle? Thanks. Really appreciate your videos!!!!

  7. The t post should be perfectly vertical. The ‘angled’ t post will be easier to lift. Sounds contradictory, but try it.

  8. I can tell that barb wire is tighter than dicks hatband. Btw. I've used that angled post to help get myself unstuck with the winch

  9. Just found your channel and really like the information. BUT…your intro music is too loud and irritating……………………..YIKES.

  10. Do you pound the lower t post in straight down and bend it or do you put it on at an angle? How do you pound a t post in so far?

  11. I sure don't use tee post any more, and I sure never use a tee post on an angel to tie wire to, the tee posts with the ribs on them are 10.95 each, for a 7 foot I use to only buy the smooth tee post 7 feet as they use to be 5$ now they are 6.99 CND I CAN BUY 1/1/2 X 101/2" X 3/16 ANDEL IRON  24 feet long for 12$ I cut my posts out of that, I cant afford to be paying 11$ for a tee post every year as I add to my fencing, I get my cedar post for free of my land witch is a good thing as they charge 7$ for cedar post up to 4" round, 9$ up to 8" round and 15$ for 10/12" but they don't want to pay me shit to buy my posts for there stock, so I sell direct to the home farms only, same with there 20' coral panels, 260$ each, so to set up a 20×20 coral that takes 3, 20 footer x 260 then one with a door in it is 400$ it is a rip off, I build my own out of used 1-'3/4 boiler tubing, feeder panel 20 feet is 600$ cnd

  12. Thanks for sharing your knowledge and tips with those of us that don't have the experience to do it right the first time! Great information.

  13. Great video, I’m the only person I know who enjoys fencing, I have found out a lot of your tricks already through trial and error, lots of errors… haha. Anyway, I have never drove the tpost in at a 45 degree angle, but I have found a lot of older tposts, and some new, have holes on the bottom at the base of the T or you can use the sheet metal plate if it’s not loose or broke off. I reuse the old tposts as stays, just like you’re using them, using the sledgehammer and drive them all but 4” into the ground. Most of the time I drive them straight And don’t have issues pulling up, but if the grounds softer like by river or creek I drive them at a slight angle to avoid them pulling up. I also thought I was the only one who tied my wire like that as well coming up from the tpost, it does look much nicer. I also have a tip, when pulling tight fence wire down to the bottom of the ditch, creek or whatever, sometimes all 260lbs of me can’t get the wire down far enough to suite me, I’m generally alone fencing, but I have found that if you use your goldenrod type fence stretcher, attach the non handle side to the wire coming off your tpost that’s drove into the ground then take the handle side and put it over the top side of that wire and just ratchet it down to the tpost stay. You don’t have to struggle holding it and takes a lot of the force off your shoulder or knees that would otherwise be holding it down. Keep up the great videos!
