I'm looking for a tool that appears to be from the 80s or so. It's about 4" long and has a pat pending stamp from fapco. Does anyone have any idea where I can find one? I've looked all over the Internet with no luck

Are you talking about the Texas fence stretcher they advertise on RFD TV?

Are you talking about that tube looking doo-hickey that was pretty much a hunk of round steel stock with a hole bored in the end? You stuck the wire in the hole and twisted it around the other section. Haven't seen one advertised in a few years.

I gotta give credit to ANYONE that can tighten barb wire without gloves! I DO wonder if the 'Texas Fence Fixer releases from the fence as easily as Jet indicates.

Yeah, trouble is, I rarely find a fence that needs tightened that can be tightened by twisting in that little piece of wire.

I still have two of these tools but I can't remember how to use them. I bought them years ago and remember that they worked well but cannot figure them out now.
