      A:  Kelly. Use a 10" auger. It's best to have a little space around the Form Tube.

          This is a great Product
          I needed something sturdy like this for my son’s school’s trunk or treat. I signed up to make the canisters from Monsters Inc. I purchased one and was able to get them cut in half in order to get two. Worked perfectly for what I needed because I needed something with a bit of weight so it wouldn’t fall when placed on the floor.

              Ideal Form Tube For Setting 4x4 Posts
              This form tube is easy to use and helps to simplify the process of setting concrete for posts or columns. The manufacturer provides printed instructions on the outside of the tube form. Most important is that this form tube which is made of treated cardboard must be completely dry prior to concrete being poured into it for the tube form to maintain maximum strength and integrity. The manufacturer also specifies the amount of concrete mix required per foot on the outside of the form tube to fill the length of the form tube. The diameter of the form tube is +/- 0.5 inch to make it cheaper and easier to ship several form tubes by nesting them inside of each other. I used three 80 pound bags of concrete mix to fill all of the 48" length of this 8" diameter tube form and had some concrete left over. It is always better to have some concrete left over then it is to not have enough concrete because concrete must be mixed properly and poured all at once for all of the concrete to bond correctly as one solid mass before the concrete sets. The 8" diameter of this form tube is an ideal size for setting 4x4 posts since the Strong Tie post bases recommend 2" of concrete on all sides of their bases. 8" diameter is also just large enough to be able to use a spade shovel to compact the concrete as it is poured into the tube form.

              Purchased this item to roll up paintings on canvas. Works perfectly for larger canvas paintings and helps reduce the potential for damaging the artwork when transporting.

              The Sakrete tube is sturdy, rigid and resists water. It kept the concrete well contained and retained its shape during the concrete curing period.
