Sorry

Thatís kinda sick you just smacked fuck out of a slab with a sledge, heart for days
Hard work, fuck me youíre keen
Sounds like torture


Edit, my bad I intended on having a laugh then helping, I forgot to help
If you can get your hands on something with a sds bit just smash a wee hole in there, insert reo and concrete. Brute force like that is no good for your arms or the slab. Thorís just a movie, bro

I didn't think I'd get this invested, but I need to know what the status of the pole jam is. Thanks.

Yíall havenít mentioned the easiest way. Find a spot where the cement meets the grass and thereís a sidewalk or more cement running next to it all . In the corner area of the grass where everything meets dig. Dig farther away from the sidewalk to make it a bigger gap. If you do it in the very corner, itís not even a gap at all. Then you put the pole in and boom, you and all the homies are pole jamming over the grass on to the sidewalk. Done this at multiple parks and spots before and it only takes an hour of hard work max. Usually lasts for a week or so before the city or someone digs up the pole.

Has anyone tried to make a natural pole jam in the streets with just a sledgehammer?

Thereís an almost perfect one by me that goes into a little ditch. Itís already bent but itís just barely too steep. Wondering if it would even be possible to bend it with just a sledgehammer?

Always been curious about this as well. I always imagined taking a bow torch to the bottom of the pole for awhile then hitting it with a sledge hammer. No idea if it would work or not. Anyone ever tried?

Sooo, has the polejam been born?!?

Ah I couldn't get it done. The sledgehammer just wasn't going to do the job. I resigned myself to the fact that I needed to hire someone with a jackhammer or special drill to get a deep enough hole. Then I had money issues and couldn't pay for it. I still have the pole and even the bag of concrete, as well as the other tools. I actually found a natty pole jam this past spring so there was no need to build my own, but of course it's gone now. So hopefully next spring I'll get it done. I still want to do it; there still isn't any reliable, normal pole jam in my entire city.

Yeah, probably. Honestly I watched a fucking how-to video with Al Partanen and he literally just took a sledgehammer to some concrete and somehow bust a hole open due to some pre-existing hole. It's all lies. I have very little construction or DIY experience and no one to help so I thought it would work out.

Never heard of an SDS bit or anything of the sort, I'll check that out.

I was looking for spots like this but no dice, plus I want to build a jam that lasts for awhile so I was scoping out abandoned buildings and their parking lots. But maybe I'll go on a deeper hunt next time.

You mentioned you wanted to put it at your local park initially I think? Itís not impossible but will be difficult since they likely poured 4-6inches of concrete and busting that up to put your pole in would be a big undertaking.

The cheapest and easiest method (which I think I mentioned before) would be to find someone ideally a buddy, to weld a plate onto the pole at your desired angle with holes for some bolts. borrow or rent an SDS concrete hammer drill and insert some bolts tighten them down and your done. If you have to pay a welder to do it it probably would be less than $50 if you have all the materials. But if you know anyone that welds itís likely they could do it all from scrap at their job. I paid a buddy to weld me a flat bar and he was able to use all scrap material and I paid him $50 for his time.

Hereís an example a friend made at a local DIY as well as links to the materials I mentioned above.

Edit: the only downside to this method is itís really easy to steal or take out, all they need is a wrench. So if you bend the bolts after the nuts are tight and you already have concrete Iíd pour some around the bolts. Still pretty easy to take out by say the city but it will deter crack heads from just stealing it to scrap.

After 3:25 you will see a simple pole jam that any welder could build you for $100 just from their scrap. I have better footage of it somewhere but I cant find it.

Hit up Busenitz he'd probably make you one. You can take it anywhere or bolt it down

Those are good ideas @Ray C. Usery @Michnich191 I may just go with those options. Bolting a pole to the ground is probably the best idea.

Still don't really know where to do it, I called the city to ask for permission to build it in the park and was denied, so I'm a bit paranoid that they'll know it was me if I do in fact build it in the park. It's been snowing for the past two weeks and the weather won't be consistently warm until fucking April, so that's like seven months, so when I emerge from hibernation I'll explore those ideas.

It's weird, huh. He goes to Home Depot and buys a sledge and everything. And then he just so happens to bust a hole where there's already a hole underneath. And my thought process was like, okay even if there's not a pre-existing hole, I'll just be able to dig one out after I bust through the concrete. Why would I buy this sledgehammer otherwise? But nope.

Yeah you can see the spray paint where they marked and cut a bit out with a concrete cutter or something
Donít hire one mate they can kick like a motherfucker if you catch the blade on something

The lads that said to bolt it down are right thatís the easiest way with tools but you still need a sds hammer drill

I skated a diy in Pattaya one time and it was a paved brick surface they had removed one brick and just smashed it into the ground and concreted it in
Thatís the easiest way with no tools just a sledge but again itís already been mentioned
