Homemade Barbed Wire Unroller
Here's a barbed wire unroller I made to take some of the work and frustration out of un-rolling wire with a stick, shovel handle or rod. It consists of a 4-ft. long handle, with top loop handle and bottom flare, that I bought from Northern Hydraulics for $20. I then took two scrapped 16-in. dia. disc blades and bolted a length of 3/4-in. dia. galvanized pipe flanges to the inside of each blade. I screwed two pieces of 3/4-in. dia. pipe into the pipe flanges to act as an axle.
The disc blades keep wire from getting messed up as it's unrolled. A "keeper" on the lower part of the handle allows you to spread the wheels when putting in a new roll of wire. (Harvey Malon, 635 Westwind Drive, Rapid City, S. Dak. 57702; ph 605 343-2349)
