Who has 'em. What kind, material, line type?
Ours are 2" heavy wall. Drilled 3' down poured a footing with rebar sticking up.
Set posts filled to top with concrete.
My EX-BIL looked at the posts and proclaimed them "5yr posts, 10 if you are lucky".
Been there since our 18 year old was wearing diapers. Need new paint though.
Four 33', plastic coated, steel wire lines.
Length was chosen by what "looks right" for the yard.
Sucks when you buy new line.
Modern dam hardware doesn't carry spools. You buy packages. 25 or 50 foot lengths.
So I buy 50' throw away 15'.
Only replaced 2 though.
DO NOT DRIVE A SUBARU WAGON UNDER THE CLOTHSLINE,
WITH THE TAILGATE UP!
One pole is a little off plumb.
DO NOT CONTINUE BACKING SAID SUBARU WHEN A KID BLOCKS YOUR MIRROR!
We are the poor Rednecks in a nice area. Many wives have commented that they
wish they had a line. Their husbands won't allow it in the "lawn".
My wife loves it. She can wash clothes continuously until they are all done.
It's simple to sort them and fold them, so that everything is ready to go to
its owners dresser.
Also have 3 lines in the basement.
About 15 feet, cotton line.
On 2x10's screwed to the floor joists and supported so they don't twist the joists.
