It's an old Fence Stretcher/Splicer and this Instructable is going to show you how to use it to splice a wire fence.
It's spring and we've already had a few tree-dropping storms, so I've got a few fences to repair...Let's go !
First step, gather the tools needed:
- Fence Splicer/Splitter - this one has been around, but I see they can still be purchased ...your local farm supply store or even on Amazon
- Wire cutter (I grabbed a tin snips...there are better tools for this job but alas....)
- Large screwdriver
- Fence Staples (1 1/4")
- Pliers or vice grips
- Tape to mark the repair
Safety first, if it's an electric fence turn off the electric fencer :-)
