Good stuff!!!

 

Just don't use a Craftsman screwdriver because it'll break and injure you.

and with Sears closing so many stores getting a replacement is getting harder.... I have the 2 closest Sears stores to me going away within the next couple of months.     The one in the next town closest to me I have to say "good riddance" to..... surprised it took this long.  story for later.

I have always used a piece of 3/4" X 1/8" flat about 4" long with a hole on each end in about 1`/2" or so.  One hole was for single lighter wire like the center on web fence.  The other would take double strand barb wire and the top and bottom of the web.  Wire could not slip out but would have to finish the wrap up with a pair of pliers, or leave the end sticking out a little.

I've done the same job with a pair of pliers, but it was never as nice.
