Jack Up Your T-Posts
Old car bumper jacks work great for pulling T-posts out of the ground, says John Stover, Harrisonburg, Va.
  He recently sent photos of how he used a 1970s bumper jack to pull T-posts out of the ground. I was replacing the steel posts in my fence line with wooden posts. I thought there had to be an easier way than pulling the posts out with my bare hands, and I didnt want the hassle of getting on and off a tractor all the time. The bumper jack is small enough that I can haul it around on my ATV.
  He cut a V-shaped slot in the jacks base plate to fit around the post, and then tack welded a 1/4-in. thick steel plate onto the bottom of the base plate to reinforce the area where the slot had been cut out.
  To pull the post out, he simply wraps a chain around the post and hooks it to the jack.
