How to fence on straight and arrow

NEED to bang those fence posts in "arrow" straight?

The "V" Level, from Sterling Tools, is a levelling device for precision fencing. It comes with a securing strap, which leaves both hands free to make minor and exact adjustments to post position.

Though unconventional in appearance, the "V" works like a standard spirit level: A theodolyte-type bubble takes care of the horizontal plane, and there is a conventional bubble for the vertical.

Price of the levelling tool is £15 (0114-276 5605).
