  1. When I was a kid we would use the neck portion of an old coke bottle as an insulator. Just break off the top, drive a nail in the post and hook your wire to it. Beer bottles worked just as well. Can’t get any cheaper than that.

    1. Nice. Etching the bottle neck with a glass bottle cutter before snapping it off might make the process neater.

  2. Great info. Thanks. Any chance you could post a picture of the plastic pipe insulators? I’m not quite getting it from the written instructions.

  3. When people begin understanding and using ingenuity it soon leads to an increased level of imagination they will apply to everything they do.

  4. I love the ingenuity…I’m assuming that the plastic tubing is the last cog to go in place on the outrigger. And you staple it in place on a post or the bole of a tree. Does it take two or three staples to adequately secure the outrigger? Also, what gauge of wire is the outrigger made from?
