"I've noticed in the South they are called stakes. In AK, what is written on is called a lath however we have  "guard stakes" and "survey lath"."

"I don't know either but I gather it is just another term for a survey stake, which is used in certain areas. I think the dictionary will say a lath is a grid comprised of thin wooded strips or boards, like Mr. Cato says above."

"i still don't get the 'lath' usage... I've always heard that term used as support for mud walls prior to the mainstream abundance of sheetrock... The day after this thread started I heard it used by some canadian carpenters to…"

"I don't consider myself dressed  unless I have my pocket knife in my pocket but in over 40 years of surveying, I have never used it to change a stake or lath as they apparently call it in other locations. I recall a VA nurse's comment…"

"Thanks for all your replies! I'm going to continue bringing my knife out with me in to the field, as I have it with me all the time. Most handy tool you can have with you nearly everywhere at anytime. I really like the Idea of the pocket…"

"When I worked for the US Forest Service we used plastic stakes & grease pencils for cut stakes on logging roads. Easy to wipe clean & change. Problem was that they melted when they decided to control burn the area. I remember when the…"

"A very sharp knife or very coarse sanding block.  On construction I remove and keep the old one and replace it with a new one, I don't like the idea of altering a lathe because I can see that being a problem, someone messes up and tries to…"

Lath Corrections

How does everyone make corrections their lath markings when out in the field? Currently we're using a pocket knife to scrape off mistakes/out of date information. I'm thinking that their should be an easier way.We try to reuse lath where we can. Typically it's just for a change in offset, and I'm looking for an easier way then using a pocket knife.Thanks!See More

"A sharp knife to fix a small area. Replace lath if its going to be time consuming."

George Yerion replied to Jon's discussion Lath Corrections
"I had a surveyor working for me one summer who was a little light-handed when driving lath.  I like to see them driven in far enough so that it takes two hands and a winch to pull them, but the ones he drove took far less effort to remove.…"

"This is so so true, more site supers don't understand why we can't just use what's there. I try to explain, what if they made a mistake? Who is going to pay for my mistake by using the other surveyors work?"
