Need recipe fo homemade disposibles

I'm gonna try to make some homemade disposable stakes out of galvanized electrical conduit. Its kind of a recipe I've seen, but i'm not sure about. Cutting 3" piece of 1/2" conduit wit a 45* angle on one end. Drill two 1/4 inch holes about 1/2 inch apart in the center to loop a piece of 1/8th inch cable through about 18" long.

To drive it into the ground I was gonna slide a piece of the conduit about 3" long onto a piece of 1/2" rebar with about 2-3" of rebar protruding through the end, then weld the conduit so that it doesn't slide up or down the rebar. When I drive the stake, It will actually be the conduit welded onto the rebar that will be pushing the disposable conduit stake with the cable through the dirt, and the rebar will act as a guide... Maybe it makes sense to you maybe it doesn't just looking for some ways to save a few bucks on supplies.

How are they to get in the ground? I am getting off of the berks, just haven't decided if I'm going with the homemades like your showing, the pogo's or just switching over to wolf fangs. I'm a cut and go guy and the bought ones start adding up if your running many or moving around.

Oh yeah, I like the hole punch, I make my own similar to yours but I cap them with the threaded cap and the caps always break/ split...I'm going to shamelessly steal your idea and weld a couple up like that..

Re: Need recipe fo homemade disposibles

That cookie cutter is pretty ingenious........did you make it? Or buy it somewhere?

Agree, that trap cutter idea is thinking outside the box. I will be fabricating one for next year. Should be awesome to get your traps bedded solid I would think?

Re: Need recipe fo homemade disposibles

someone throw out some dimensions. I have a roller and I think I could make one of these things, heck I like it too and I dont even trap,,,,,,yet

It may be a poor choice of words but I am smart enough to understand what you meant.
