Quick-Built Post Pounder
So the Neosho, Wis., farmer quickly made a bigger one out of odds and ends he had around. It works on anything from 5/8-in. steel rod for electric fence up to 2-in. dia. steel posts.
He used a 26-in. length of 3 by 3-in. angle iron 1/4-in. thick. He welded a 3/4-in. thick chunk of 4-in. dia. steel - cut off a solid shaft - to one end. He welded two handles made of steel rod to the sides of the pounder.
More pounding power could be gained by using a 3 or 4-in. thick section of steel on the ram end, he says.
