Expert advice needed...
I'm making up some v-section snow pickets from extruded aluminium. They'll be 24" (60cm) long. I'm wondering, besides the holes in the middle, and ones at either end, how many holes ought I drill along their length, and what diameter should these holes be?
The v-section is 5cm either side and 3mm thick as recommended.
Also, I'm thinking of leaving the ends smoothed over but flat... like the MSR coyote's rather than spiking one end. What do folks here think?
Last question... to use these as snow pigs I plan on attaching cables through the centre holes. To use them as conventional stakes, I can then thread the cable up thru the top holes and clip in a biner... or should I just clip in a quickdraw thru the top holes and forget the cable?
