Here it is, my peg pusher:





Great idea which I have copied (but, I think, improved on slightly with a 'smoother' feeling to the hand)


Supplier = Toolstation


Item = "Overflow 21mm T-Piece"
Cost = 59p (saving 40p against the 'serrated' version)
Weight = 17 grams

Nyah, mine's only 5g!

Seriously, Alan, that looks OK, though you'll probably need to shorten the length of the side pipe otherwise it won't push the peg in far enough. (Distance from inside the tool to the end of the side pipe = how much of the peg will remain sticking out of the ground.)

I'm 'On-It' (as they say) which of course ( for the gram counters) will reduce the weight by another gram or two..

A handy stone or a carefully applied boot works for me.  :)
