I wonder what the most unusual thing used in fence repair has been? Neighbor uses bed springs, terrible idea. They rust into a million pieces very quickly. Seen pallets used and they make a good windbreak if used in a series (as a Cards fan I hate to use the word "series"!). Saw a good log chain on a water gap. Worked but wouldn't be cheap for as many as I've got.

One place near me uses Big Bolders and another brought home a bunch of Snow Mobil Box Bottoms that are like bed frames and wired them together to make a fence. That fence looks terible all rusted and different heights. Mark H.
