Snowplow-proof mailbox

David J. Petro-Roy

Another of my projects using WEST SYSTEM was my mailbox post. I was tired of the snowplow trucks knocking down my mailboxes so, as a hobbyist welder, I built a mailbox post out of steel using square tube, box tube, and angle iron. I wanted the post to look like wood. To avoid grinding an excessive amount of welds, I affixed a number of components as well as all the trim work using Six10® Epoxy Adhesive. I believe I achieved my goal. WEST SYSTEM products are “bulletproof” and my post has already withstood our first major snowstorm here in the northeast.
