Re: metapost or groundmaster fence post support?

Hi Carolyn,
Metapost to support a Gate? What you need to remember is, that n matter how deep the spike is into the ground, the post is onl supported/gripped by 4 to 6 inches of metal clamp. This will be th weak point especially as some posts may be under the stated size an thus the clamp would not compress the post properly. if the gate i heavy, there will be movement. In short, if it is a light gate, tr it. If a heavy gate, concrete a full post in place.
