Introduction: 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
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.
