    Isn't there a tool that grasps on the end of the post, and grips the post tighter the more you pull up on the post? getting those ones that are broken off below ground are a bear, and I swear I've seen a tool like that. Sort of a scissor action.
    If you know the name of this gadget, please put it here. Thanks, fellas.

    And while we're at it, are there any good vids you can recommend that talk about using a farm jack to do the pulling? Thanks a bunch.

    I made a tee post puller. Just a piece of flat steel with a square hole in the middle that slides over the post. I welded a chain on it to loop over the fork of my loader. Its pulled 100s of posts. If I was pulling one broken off, I'd dig down and drop it on the post. When you pull up, it locks into the lugs.

    If you've got a handy man jack use it. Dig around the post and drop a double half hitched chain over it, the the other end around your jack.

    The other deal your thinking of might be this?
