My mailbox was knocked down by a vehicle and I'm thinking of trying to
use cement to fix
the break point which is right at ground level. I have one of those
plastic mailboxs with the
wood support in the back. I thought this might be easier than trying
to dig up the pole from
the ground and replacing it. How well does cement work with wood?
If this is feasible I was
wondering if a place like Lowes has a small do it yourself cement
mixing kit for small jobs
Sounds like you should just replace rather than repair. By the time you
spend the money on the the repair you will probably have paid the
replacement value of the mailbox. If the repair even works at all.
Cement does not stick to wood. Is the post in cement now or in dirt? If in
cement, it may be possible to pull out hte remaining part and just replace
Rubbermaid makes a pole that has a metal portion that is driven into the
ground, then a plastic pole over top of it. Seems to work well as mine has
been in the ground about 6 ort 7 years now.
