C'mon over, I could always use a hand. Project - new posts for gate. When it's time to do the cross bracing with wire, something is needed to twist the wire loop together. (the one that goes around both posts) I have a wooden deck mop handle that's in good shape. If I cut off a20" piece will that work? Do I need to leave it in or just use something of a smaller diameter if it needs tightening 3 or 4 years down the road.
