I'm Cheap. There, I said it! If it were me, I would buy a plain mailbox, 2 cans of rattle paint, and a decal kit form Tractor Supply. Bet I could save $50.
Best,
Mike

that sounds like a good idea, the plow guys hate us so they would try to hit it not try to miss it. they only plow when there is a dusting of snow, not when there is 10"

First put a letter in the box & tell the mail man it is there & not to take it .
2nd when they hit it call the post office & tell them that the plow truck just knocked down your mail box & it had mail to send in it.
Mail that the mail man put there is no good it has to be mail with postage to cancel .


2nd idea 6" casing 4' deep.
Mail box built out of 1/2" plate
don't laugh I have seen boxes like this & don't know but I think that is why.
If it's been broken I did it.
If its not broken wait till I touch it.

hey jostev. as i said earlier great minds think a like. got tired of waiting for the circle cub emblem to come in so i made my own graphics. put on magnetic paper, put that plastic stuff on em to seal em, and this is what i got. i think the base is a "bean head drum" from an old combine. correct me if i am wrong.

:lol: :lol: :lol:

Yeah but it doesn't affect the BDGPCL (BigDog Global Positioning Cub Locator) 8) which is an upgrade from the old CLB. Sorry! :lol:

A street near here seemed to be having a lot of trouble with mail boxes. Some kids would go down the street and nail every box with a 2x4. One guy got sick of it and came up with a home made box -- made of 1/4" diamond plate.

On another nearby street, there was a mail box on a pole that looked like pipe, maybe about 2 1/2". One day I happened to look a little closer and notice it was that size RE-BAR.
