One of the best home flag projects I have ever seen:

Flagpole hardware kit"Once I had your Bull Moose flag bracket kit, the hardest part was trying to find an 8x8x8 wooden post. You canít get them at Lowes or Home Depot. They only sell 6x6 inch (5.5x5.5 inch actual) which is too small for your bracket. But I finally found a sawmill nearby that cut me an 8x8 inch post made of pressure treated southern yellow pine (PT SYP). Once I got the post home, I cut the 8 foot post down to 7.5 feet in length, so that Iíd have a full 2.5 feet underground and 5 feet above.

Hereís where I found the 8x8 inch post (7.5x7.5 inch actual size): Google "Cracker Saw Mill Williston Florida" Or call 352-529-2070

Then I dug a 2.5 ft deep hole, 2 feet in diameter. After that I took out an additional 3 inches in depth and added a foundation of pea gravel. Once I had the post vertically alligned & plumbed, I added several more inches of pea gravel around the bottom of the post before setting the post with eight 50-lb bags of concrete. Probably a little overkill, but it sure is not going anywhere! It is massively sturdy, and that is exactly what I wanted."

 

 

 

 

 



Flagpole Hardware KitI used 5/16x3.5 inch stainless steel lag screws from Home Depot to mount the Bull Moose bracket, and three nylon shoulder washers from Ace Hardware to make sure I donít get any galvanic-induced corrosion from steel on aluminum over time.

Once I had everything mounted, I took the bracket off and stained the entire post (and wooden cap too). Then I used exterior caulking to affix the cap to the post.

The Proud Owner:

Upscale flagpole kit

 

I am really happy with how it all turned out! I had first thought about a 20 ft flagpole, but that was more than I wanted. I prefer the 30 degree angled display of your bracket, but there was no good way to mount it to our house. Plus I wanted the flag to have its very own post, and placed so that the flag would never chaff against our house or a tree branch...no matter which way the wind blew!

Thanks again for the GREAT Bull Moose flag bracket kit!

Happy New Year!
