Introduction: Pallet Dismantler

Picture of Pallet Dismantler

Pallets are a great method of making projects cheaply.

The problem I have with pallets is are they are hard to get apart.

I was tired of breaking the pallets while I was dismantling them.

I searched the interweb for ideas. However, they were expensive.

Being a maker, I looked around and decided a garden fork could be modified, and I was confident it would be fit for the purpose.

Step 1: Tools Used

Tools I used were:

A thin part off wheel on a 125mm grinder

Welder - I used a MIG

Step 2: Method

Picture of Method

I started by cutting off the tynes leaving the outside ones with as much of the 'top' as possible.

Cut off the middle ones.

Sand the paint off to make it easier to weld.

Weld the tynes on at 90 degrees.

After trial and error, I found it helped to cut the tynes length in half to make it easier to remove the boards.

Sand paint and use.

This is brilliant. I've been toying with ideas for a pallet-breaker, but haven't liked any of the designs I've seen so far. Thank you :-)
