    Question feather edge fencing question

    Right then - got to put up about 17m of feather edge fencing after the winter storms

    So having practised on the back of the garden (about 8m - only needed 3 new posts) i am going to have a crack at the bit down the side of the house.

    So at the back i used some of these from wickes. They looked ok when i put them up and TBH i didnt care as they are on the other side of the fence.

    Down the side of the house i need circa 9 lengths of aris rails - mult by 3 - gives me 27 rails to fit - and with 2 of these on either end it starts to add up (you know what i mean!).

    So having looked at what the pros do - it appears you can cut out a notch on the end of the rail and then attach that to the new posts - so my question is whats the best combination of power tools to do the job ?

    ive tried experimenting with a jigsaw at 45 degrees and that sort of works.

    just wondered what others had done

    Never done it. If the hardware is the easiest solution, these folks are cheap for that kind of thing :

    Don't pay for next day delivery, it often comes next day even with the cheap 3-5 day version.
