    they finally got a locator? their locator quit about a month and a half ago because he got another job. then after that an old co worker took the job and lasted 3 days. then after that their was not a locator. they have been getting tix marked in time in my area but what i saw today down 59, but i would not trust whos evers marks they are because in dupage county on 59, the fiber i marked for years, went to go refresh for an on going job and they must have been there a day or 2 before me and their marks were 25 feet away from my initial marks and our fibers are directly next to each other. they prob do not even know about the zayo old abovenet that it is on the lms system and they just call in a tone. their old locator did not even know about it until i told him. tons of zayo around now they bought abovenet. ton more to mark more than just 1 locator can handle and dont forget they also mark the xo fiber

    I've been working on that 59 project for a while now. Haven't hit anything!

    So I've got a question about Nextlink (XO) manholes...the lids that are bolted down, are those a special size or something? Because none of my sockets fit those damn bolts and I needed to get into one today.

    They are called penta head bolts around here I bought the socket for them on ebay for 5 bucks. Couldn't get the boss to spring for it.

    I searched for that on ebay but everything I found had to deal with cars. Do you have any specific sizes for me to search for?

    Results for Pentagon - USABlueBook Search

    I have about 9 of them. You can pick them up at Hughes, Ferguson or just about any pipe and supply distributor. XO should have some.
