I have a retaining wall that ends at the edge of my parking area.  Tends to get run over at the end.  So I installed a post we thought it needed a little colour and light.  Because people will back into things.  Doesn't matter that i built the parking pad big enough to turn a 1 ton crew cab with 8 ft box on.  People in little SUV etc can't stay on the gravel and go over the edge of the wall.

 

The drill press I bought at auction few years ago $2 it was seized up.  I have it all free now and Kim painted it for me.  Couple of solar lights.

Cool!  :thumbs:   I like things like that. (better yet so does the wife!)

 

Tried bidding on two of those at an estate auction.  They ended up going for over $100  each.   The high bidder said he had overseas buyers for both of them and would make a good profit.    Rick

That's cool. It would be stolen in my area if not welded to post.

 

I have the same driveway problem, my family wants me to make it wider cause it's hard to back down they say, yet I can back my 16' flatbed trailer with my Tahoe up and down with not a problem. :loosing_it:

I once had a foreman who lived in a sub division where a rapscallion would drive through at night and run over the mail boxes. When he replaced his, he put it in a milk can that he filled full of concrete. When he got up the next morning, the box was still in place and had bits of car scattered around.

Had an acquaintance tell me he lost three wooden post mailboxes
Went out and bought 4" thick wall pipe.
Put it in. Fills the pipe with rebar and concrete
Painted it with a similar color paint to what the wood ones were stained.

One Morning, The pickup with the hefty bumper was up on the post. Pipe bent, truck's momentum tipped It in the ground, but then it sat like a boat run aground

Police were real interested.

Hoping people aren't backing up that fast in my yard.  You never know.
