Q. About 10 years ago we bought a corner-set tool that eliminated the need for batter boards during excavation. It consists of a main aluminum body that attaches to a metal stake. The adjustment handle is high-impact plastic, and a cadmium-plated hardened-steel insert in the body provides long thread life for adjusting screws. The tool is called the Start Right Reusable Corner System and was manufactured in Sonora, Calif. We recently tried to buy another Start Right, but the data sheet we have is several years old, and the telephone number it gives for the manufacturer is now a residential number. Can you help us find a new source for this tool?
A. We couldn't find a source for the tool, but if any readers know where to purchase this system, please call Ward Malisch at 800-837-0870, extension 2607.
