Drop Tube for Dirt

Drop Tube for Dirt
I was setting wood fence posts this morning and I kept thinking that if I just had a drop tube big enough, I could be much more efficient backfilling the dirt around the posts. Imagining what it would look like kept me amused while I did it the old fashioned way...

Griff,

It's still hard to beat the old 2x4 for doing the compacting Smile

True, but it's interesting what comes to mind when you're doing mindless work...

If ya don't what to handle the dirt ya could run tap down the hole and threat the posts. That would make for real precise height adjustment Big Grin Hmmm think Acme threads would be best??

I see that I'm not the only one who thinks like this.

Hmmm......Maybe a modified Mt. sight drifter might work. I hear tell they work pretty good.
Your right, I think the lack of going to shoots are starting withdrawals.
I have confidence that next season will be better because I just ordered a case of powder while it's in stock before the run next spring. Smile

Ahhh, a large sight drifter to help align the posts... You've got me thinking.
