Introduction: Pallet Easy Nail Removal

For all Pallet wood reclaimers.

Recycling a couple of heavy duty pallets for the 2x4 and was having quite a time getting the bent nails out.so i ground them off at about 8mm and then was able to hammer them through and pulled them out with my claw hammer

I cut my slats from the risers w a sawzall. The slats are easy. The risers are a pain to denail. Attempting to pry the boards apart would yield 30% fewer boards since they are thin & brittle.
