Karen, for a basketball goal 24 to 30 inches deep will be fine and be sure to use sacrete with rock in it. You can level the pole and pour the sacrete in dry and tamp the dry cement with a shovel handle os something until it firms up and pour water in on top and it will seap down and cement will set up.

How can you buy just the saw for the 8" 2 in 1 pole saw.


after looking at reviews written on
http://www.chainsawsdirect.com/Earthwise-CVPS41008-Chain-Saw/p7224.html

Robert

Tried chain saw. Working on limbs about 12 ft above ground.
First limb about 3 inches diameter, Oak. Worked fine.
Second limb same size. Cutter slip off branch could not stop the saw from hitting ground. Broke case where it attaches to pole.
No parts, and no way to repair it as company had no idea what kind of cement/glue I could use. So one branch cost me $120.00.

Like Robert my saw hit the ground and busted in the same spot (this will happen to you sooner or later) and you can not get repair parts, its now a door stop.
Pros: Easy To Use, Light Weight
Cons: Can Not Get Repair Parts
I am guessing you mean the entire cutting end of the saw too, I would get a new one either same model so you have a spare pole or find a another brand that definatly sells spare parts.
Ive never used a electric polesaw but have done alot of work with with longer petrol and shorter hydrolic polesaws, even top of the range they can be broken easily always keep the chain sharp, cut one branch at a time or small clumps on a hedge.
Commonly they get dropped cause they get really heavy extended a shoulder belt helps alot as do coffee breaks.
Or they get jammed in the branch being cut which can be really dangerous with a half cut branch, be ready to run.
Also never use from a ladder

My basketball hoop broke and I have a pole cemented in the ground. Can you buy just the hoop/backboard itself and attach to the pole or do I have to cut the pole and start over?


Sorry I know nothing about basketball but it seems a crying shame to cut down the pole even if you can't find a replacement hoop and board.

I have faced many similar things and I find remembering the wise old saying "in order to get the right answer it is important to first ask the right question"...

I suggest you ask around those who should know such things - the coach at the local schools, local teams. If you don't get satisfaction then why not ask your local repair shop or fabricator if they can make what you need at a reasonable cost.

I want to make a tetherball pole stay in the ground without falling over, how can I do this?


You should dig a hole that is about 2 feet deep, you should get a pole which is 2 inches thick and 12 feet long. Place the pole into the hole so that 10 foot of it is sticking out of the ground. Fill the hole with cement and wait for it to dry. This should be enough to keep the pole in place when swinging the ball.

I have Simmons deep sleep air bed which got 2-3 leaks :( Suggest me something..what to do next?


If the holes are small, a dab of rubber cement on the holes may be sufficient to seal them. Larger holes will require a patch of the same or similar material as the mattress itself.

To properly adhere a patch, roughen up the mating surfaces of the mattress and the patch. Sandpaper is ideal. Be sure the mating surfaces are clean and free of dust. Apply rubber cement to the patch and apply it over the hold. Apply pressure to the patch using weights (a stack of books work great). Let the repair sit this way for the duration of the time required for the cement to set up according to the instructions on the cement.

Hope this helps.

Regards,

We just purchased a used '99 Starcraft Field & Stream PUP. There were no instructions for setting up the awning. I need step-by-step ''how-to'' help since everything I've found says, ''raise support...


I had exact same problem on my 93 popup. I finally figured it out. First, the poles with the plastic rings slide into the poles with the metal rings. These are the vertical support poles. Next, the poles w/ plastic nipples slide into the other poles with rubber ends. When put together the poles with the nipples should be spring loaded. These spring loaded poles rest against the top of the camper and the nipples are inserted into the 3 holes of the pole that go across the front of the awning giving you rafter support. The tension from the spring should keep the pole in place against the side of the camper. The first 3 poles with the plastic rings go from the ground to the front awning pole where the nipples can slide through the plastic ring and then into the awning pole. The vertical poles can be adjusted for height by sliding them up or down and then twisting them like a screw to tighten them up and keep them in place. 2 of my 3 vertical poles will not lock when I twist them so I have to get tricky with them. The metal rings, which should now be at the ground, are there so that you can stake it down under windy conditions. I hope this wasn't too confusing but I beleive it will help you. Good luck!!!

No Instructions


Peg out the "brown" ground sheet of the inner tent and hold it up like a standard ridge tent.
Put the two shorter upright poles on the inside of the compartment (with something under the feet to prevent damage to the ground sheet). Put the 40mm tubes on the spike that pokes through, and then put the ridge pole on the outside.
Everything should then hold in place while you put the fly sheet over the top with the 2 longer poles at the front.......

tip - line up the seam on the fly sheet with the front of the inner tent as you peg it out....
Good luck
