Oh, that old thing? that's the Grog BC300, it worked great, except the pecker would wear out and it was hard to get replacements.

Question: Just how many beers must you consume before you understand a foreign language? I've got to admit, I drink heavily and I still don't understand what Aaron is saying most of the time . . . <super big wink> :lol:

Lost three fillings and a pair of underwear! :shock: :wink: :lol:

Nope, not a thing. It was in SoCal, I'm in NorCal. Fresno is central Cal and it had a good jostling this morning.

When a guy has to change a fence post, it would be nice if the ground were soft . . . it wasn't . . . and cool . . . it wasn't! :roll:

Took me more than 2 hours to break out the old core and dig through the very rocky soil. Then it took another 2 hours to set the new post, put the fence sections back, picket repair, and clean up. Luckily, I was in mostly shade for most of that time, but it was still very hot. Burb said it was 98F when I crawled into her at about 3pm. Damn the Burb's AC works good! :mrgreen: I was looking forward to it all day long.

My AC is starting to feel a little less cool and dry. Probably needs a refrigerant charge.

Spruce you gotta take the garden hose and soak the bejesus out of spot where you're gonna dig a post hole.

Soak. Dig a bit till it gets dry. Soak again. Repeat til the hole is deep enough.

Spray yourself down for heat relief as you're working.

If I was digging in hard pan, you'd be correct, this wasn't hard pan, it was river rock from 1" to 6" in diameter surrounded by dirt and concrete. Ain't no amount of water gonna ease that kind of digging. I've got a digging bar, and all you can do is heft it into the air and bring it to bear with all your might a ridiculous number of times to make these materials give way. When all is done, you're worn completely out and it's time to set the new post. You layer in the rocks and what little dirt there is, then heft that damned breaker bar's tamping end into the air and bring it to bear on the loose dirt and rock to tamp in in place. Mind you, you're already shot having just removed the contents from the hole, now you get the joy of reversing the steps. Suffice it to say, after 2 to 2-1/2 hours of hefting that bar, you're dying for that bar stool and favorite adult beverage, it can't come soon enough to sooth the fatigue of that damnedable digging bar!

Sure, but do you really want to meet your heros? I mean, we're all awesome and can do anything ever to be put in front of us. But, think of the egos :shock: :| That much manliness in one room could put the earth out of its orbit! :o Yeah, we'd all be fine, we're awesome and can handle anything, but think of all them poor folks who would suffer when the sun ceases to rise, the tides never ebb, and Saskatchewan becomes ocean front property! :o :o :lol:

Aw sh*t, yeah if you're having to wield that thing repeatedly, that is quite another matter. I guess I might rent a jackhammer and/or awl something. ;)

I don't have the equipment that I used to, and can't justify buying it now, because, basically, this is side work for me, not a vocation. I doubt I'll do any more fence work in the next year, which means any specialty tools that would have helped on this one, just aren't feasible.

There's gotta be some sort of cork screw implement that can be had that will drill down the core and then pull it from its moorings without the need for the bar or jackhammer. If not, there should be!

Gotta work smarter, not harder. You'll get yourself a hernia dealing hoisting that digging bar too much.

Auger! That's what you need. I meant to say that above, I said awl instead.
