Sometimes if used post holes are not used fast enough they close up   . Oh well  this time of year we get free rodent holes . Darn those rodents .

That's where it's important to use spray on "Speed Starch" on them to bind them in their current size.   :smilewink:

I've just stacked all my used post holes in the shed but wanted to inventory them from smallest to largest but can't find anything to measure them with.  Anybody have something they can loan me.  O yeah, I'd prefer it not be too heavy I have a bad back.  Hurt it stacking the used post holes.

I'm new here and I noticed all the interest in this topic. I think I have a wonderful opportunity to recycle and fill what appears to be a definite niche in the market. We have a fair bit of oil drilling in my are so I have purchased several dry oil well. I will be cutting them to specs and selling them as post holes. Should be able to custom cut them to near any length. Please keep in mind that even though the are very light, extreme lengths could be an issue with shipping.

Hold up there, Mr. Opportunity. Any used holes formerly used in the production, transport, or realization of any petroleum production, be it refined or crude, will need to be fully inspected and certified clean by the Indiana Department of Enviromental Management. All transport of afore-mentioned holes, once deemed clean and safe (VOC<30 ppm, PCB<25 ppm, Pb<15 ppm) will fall under NHTSB designation 3938, and will be placarded as such. Manifests will be necessary, and a 14 day prior written request for transport (WROT) will be up to your local DOT.

All inspections, lab testing, remedial cleanup, (regardless of prior stewardship) and proper bribing of local, state, and federal inspectors will be the sole responsibility of the seller. (you) All lab testing will be done by:
Environmental Health Laboratories - South Bend, IN

Larry, Moe, and Curly will be your assigned field personnel:

If I order a complete oil well is it guaranteed to produce oil?

What is the method and cost of shipping?
Is there a guarantee these are completely empty?
Will you take returns?
I've had issues with Nigerians passing off gopher holes for the real thing.
