* * * *UPDATE: 9, December, 2012* * * * Wow, this video has generated a lot more buzz than I ever thought it would. Thanks to all the watch and subscribed. I created this video to show a number of people from the Tiny Yellow House, Relax Shacks forum, on how to reclaim usable wood from pallets. http://relaxshacks.blogspot.com/ I built this bar a year or so from when I made this video. I had seen it at at forum about country living in the UK. http://overthegate.myfreeforum.org/vi... As you will see, TheRangerOne had posted this info (seemingly freely) even citing "If you know a welder/fabricator, get them to make you one of these:"
A great number of you have asked for dimensions, materials, and even asked to buy finished products. I am not in the fabrication or business to sell this bar. I made this one for my own use and not interested in further development of it. It is a solid product, and mine has lasted thru many pallets. Should you want to purchase a finished product I would suggest you contact TheRangerOne here on Youtube or on the Over the Gate Forum.
This year I have taken up another type of reclaiming art ; Chainsaw sculpting. I am not working with reclaimed pallets as much as I have in the past.
Quick video about the tool I built to help easily pry apart pallets for recycling into woodworking projects. This custom made pry bar not only saves time with breaking apart pallets but it is also easy on the wood giving a greater yeild of usable wood per pallet. No more busting pallets apart with hammer and prybar. I have used this prybar on pallets of all types of woods and nails. The working part of the prybar supports both sides of the deckboard and the tube fulcrum easily rolls ontop of the stringers. This and the long handle for leverage all combine to efficiently disassemble pallets for reuse.
