    Looking for some coro stakes made from 5/16" stock, customer says that the current ones that they have are 36" tall. I can't find anything like that, but maybe I don't know where to look either.

    Looked at grimco but what he says he has are a 5/16 H stake, the only thing grimco shows in a 5/16 is the premier which is only 27" tall.

    If it were up to me these would be just fine, but the major PITA customer insists that they need to be taller because they look sooooooo much better...all the while I'm thinking...whatever, your an idiot and these are just coro signs, and you gripe about price the way it is even though your a lawyer.

    Ok done ranting, been one of them weeks so far.

    They don't have any that tall on the website, maybe I should call to find out?

    You can make them yourself to get the height. We did that for years.

    All those wire stakes are is concrete block ladder material. The original patent by Parker shows that in the application.

    The ladder material comes in 10' lengths, generally. Get the stuff with the least amount of galvanization you can so they will slide into the flutes easily. Cut with a bolt cutter. Do not cut with a grinder-type wheel as that will leave a terrible burr.
