Shirt Pocket Tool Lets Him Use Wire Clips To Attach Fence
Butch Alcorn, Encampment, Wyo.: I came up with this handy shirt pocket tool that lets me use wire clips to attach fence wire to T-posts. I start with a 6-in. spike and grind the point off, then drill a 1/8-in. dia. hole about 1 1/2 in. deep into the end of it. A lathe works best for drilling the hole, but if youre careful you can use a drill press. This tool works great for any wire wrapping job where Id otherwise have to use pliers. You just slip the end of the wire into it and twist. I painted the tool orange so its easier to find if I ever drop it in grass or hay, etc.
