Fence Post Base

Plastic coated metal fence post auger 8 EA.
  [vote for,

Along with the machine to turn these FPB's into the ground, comes the rust & rot resistant Fence Post Base. A metal auger coated in tough plastic with an attachment to a rentable machine allows for quick installation of fence posts sure to outlast traditionally installed fence posts.
When you reach proper soil embedment, slip in the post and bolt it to the base and you are good to go for probably 50 years on your post. Furthermore, you no longer have to deal with a post hole digger, almost worthless shallow concrete pier, and the improper construction technique of embedding wood into concrete.
The rented auger drilling machine should be capable enough of setting the "FPB" into the ground at a near exact vertical position.

       All your fence post base are belong to us.

       Good idea. Can I use it for ice fishing too?

       Please clarify. Is the auger a one time use, a new one for each post? Sounds a bit expensive. But I guess it makes taking them out easier too, so when I want to mave the fence in 15 years, I can just back it out.

       I have not read enough to understand the meaning of "all your ______ belong to us". I noticed that someone here used it over 2 years ago and am most curious as to where this comes from. If someone would be so kind.
Yes, one per post, but should last quite a long, long time.

       My understanding is that "All your base are belong to us" was the phrase some bad video game displayed when you lost. This somehow generated a near cultish followng, but you can probably just google it up and read all about it.

       You stole that idea from the people who make drywall ancors, the ones that look like oversized screws. But it was a good idea to steal it. I'll give you a croissant if you give me a FPB to mount my mailbox.

       They stole the idea from the people who make screws, the ones that look like normal screws ;)

       [Sir Jekyll Shave]. I saw those in your link at Lowe's today. It made me chuckle to see them. A better Idea than I had, really.
