I defer electric fence questions to farm

Above is the pics I promised on how I prefer to stretch net wire. Pull past the post and then hold each wire with the goldenrod will you make it off.
Wire shown is low tensile hinged knot.
Sorry it took long been a busy week.

Thanks for the pics. I think that would work best for me on short runs of fence so I don't have to cut it in the middle then splice it.

Fence,
I see your end posts, but can you show us what and how you tie the other post with when using pipe?

A doubled piece of 14 gauge wire. It's not as good at holding a wire in place vertically as a staple and wood. But if the wire is tight and tpost are reasonable close you can climb it.
We do some work for ncrs and they require a twist in stay at every pipe stiffner post. It completely solves that one issue.

A little over 1/4 mile of net with one post in the middle (admittedly a high spot) stapled. This should be a good visual example of how High Tensile net with a solid vertical stay can be very efficient and effective with increased line post spacing.

My favorite method for stapling. Not recommend for steel posts.

Paslode makes them for Stockade. Only way to hang board by yourself? That's the only way to hang boards if you've got plenty of help. :lol:

It'll be a while before they catch on. About $1,300 for the gun and staples are $.11 each. It won't be cost effective until the patent protection on the staples expires. My Dad is the only one that gets to use one around here.
