"found boundary marker being 3/4in rebar with aluminum cap marked 2018 by LS 174871"

fixed it

Actually it's #5 or 5/8in rebar.  It's not a cap or aluminum, rather a stainless steel disc welded to the rebar.  Hopefully it will last a long time.  They drive in the ground nicely with that Lixie dead blow hammer, doesn't damage the stamping at all.

Well darn, that's an awesome monument. Homemade I presume?

So you have to pre-weld those caps on and I gotta ask what do you do when you are in rocky ground and have to beat that rebar over to get back on the spot, won't you damage that disk?

@ C. Tompkins. We are not required. However, it is suggested to make a thorough description. I feel that it is a common sense approach and will help in later recoveries. I'm all for that.

@LRDay That is a very nice survey marker... and a nice Lixie hammer too. I have one I got a dead blow hammer at the automotive supply store, and it doesn't weigh much or have a long handle. I am saving up for the Lixie. :- )

Either hit the rebar below disc or use the Lixie.  I've only installed 15 so far and one needed the side treatment.  If you use a steel sledge it will damage the disc.  The Lixie won't damage the disc, but if possible (disc out of ground far enough) whack the rebar below it.

That's a 200H Lixie.  56 Oz.  If you buy it right about $60.

Prototype. Not for sale yet, working out the process of manufacturing and marketing.  Don't know whether they can be sold in large enough volume to make it pay.  I have 400 of them for my own use.  I been working it out on and off for three years now.  Frost won't push these off the top of a rebar.  Animals likely won't chew them up. Not damaged as much by fire as plastic, brass or aluminum.  Shouldn't rust to much (might depend on the soil).  Extremely durable and as easy to install as a bar and cap.

I agree with you on not calling it a boundary marker, however in this case I just might since it is stamped on the dics. If it has a Cap I usually never give a diameter size. I just say Capped Iron Rod, with the Surveyor's # or the Company whichever is stamped on the Cap and the color of the Cap.

I will stick with mine. The stainless costs about $0.75 each.

I had guessed at the size so I ammend my quote. Every part should be mentioned.

Found 5/8 inch rebar with welded stainless steel disk stamped Boundary Marker 2018 LS 174871

Good monument,  I like the effort you put in making it

These things are badass. Down to the last handful of my original 100, which reminds me to order another 500 tomorrow...

How heavy are those?  Stainless steel is expensive,  Must be fairly thin sheet.  Will they take any abuse?  How hard is it to pull one off?
