Wire Unroller (Ray E. Watkins Jr.)

As anyone who has ever done it knows, fencing is no easy job, says Vernon Blaisdell, Fredericksburg, Virginia. To make his day a bit easier, the 72-year-old built a cradle for rolls of wire, mounted to the corner of his loader bucket. The 19-inch-tall brackets are made from 3 x 3 x 3/16 angle iron. The brackets are mounted to the bucket with pieces of angle iron -- one side welded to the brackets, the other bolted to the bucket.
