Re: OO gauge fencing

Anyone used fine Fishing line for the fencing? Just a thought! Back to sleep now. :o Yes I have, mind you it isn't for the fainthearted or short sighted as I discovered. The easiest method I finally settled on was to calculate the number of posts needed for any given stretch then drill the places f...
