Hi all

Im doing my shed base in the garden, as in digging it out and our current cement stone line post is bang in the middle of the soon to be shed... and is nackered so will be coming out.

What i want to replace it with is a galvanised one, but cant find them on either B&Q or Homebase website ?

Anyone help,

Reason im looking at them two is they are local, i do have a travis perkins... jewsons etc local but not looked there yet.

cheers

Don't know if you can get hold of one but a scaffolding pole makes a great washing pole.

Just gotta find someone in the building trade that can "Aquire" a couple for you...lol

I could mate but im spending upwards of £2k on a new shed so dont really want a scaffold pole in front of it lol .

cheers though bud, did think of that. the type im thinking of are the ones that are twice as thick as scaffie poles and have 4 little pegs on the top. :)

if you have a nice well built shed why not put a hook somewhere secure and then put a ring on the end of your washing line and then take to your other pole.

thats what i did, looks ok and if you need to take down or put out the way its dead easy to remove.

yea see them before, problem is need to go out and get one tomorrow... :( so cant really wait for delivery

cheers though


i know the poles you mean m8, {got mine from the small local hardware store}

galvanised base shaft gets concreted in the ground, {then the galanised washing pole with the 4 pegs on the top, "slots into it"}


never seen any for sale in the big diy stores m8,----------have you tried any of the smaller diy shops in your area ????????
