The first question that comes to mind when considering products from pallets - where to get the stuff?The answer is simple: almost any distribution center or warehouse of household goods.Most likely, there will give them free or for a small fee.Get hold of wooden pallets and wooden bars of rubber and automotive glass can be in the car shop.

best to use the so-calledpallets, but note that they are difficult to understand than the packaging of domestic production.Pay attention to the width of the boards.Standard - 120-125 mm, thickness - 12 mm.

How to disassemble the pallets?

understand - not to build.However, in this case, you have a lot of patience and time.After all, if you do not use pallets for rough walls, and, for example, for furniture, you need to get even and without significant flaws board.

According to friends, the removing of the pallet takes 15-20 minutes.It seems - not much, but it's - if you're going to do, say, garden table.And what about the whole house?That was then, and think

about.You can speed up the process - if you develop relevant skills and reserved the right tool.

You will need: a claw hammer (better authenticity and with the flat end of a width not less than 3 cm), a hammer, pliers, pincers, perhaps - and an ax.It works better in cloth gloves.Also prepare met: the nails of various sizes right sort of jars.Straight and slightly curved nails (after, you can straighten) surely come in handy on the farm.The rest can be filled into a concrete solution by pouring the foundation or device garden path.

before disassembling pallets dry well.The most common pallets made from pine, aspen, birch boards.Less common oak or exotic hardwoods: quebracho, Hevea.Snatch rusty nails from the boards of more complex: a claw hammer pulls her hat and mites snack nail.Inspect the tray from all sides, turn.If the nails pierced through, recessed or curved, such a product is better to postpone.Most likely, you will break during disassembly transverse board.

If bent nails are many, nothing to do, have to work with them.Forum users are advised to remove the nails are as follows:

  1. Take a thick nail (120-150 mm) or M6 screw.Place it on the nail hat knocked out and hit with a hammer - so hat the last bit drowned, and got out of the curved end of the board.
  2. Straighten the bent tip pliers or cut, such as Bulgarian.
  3. Knock a nail back, hitting the tip of the rectified.

straight nail easily pulled out a claw hammer for just raised hat.To raise it, gently pull the board, and then hit return it to the place.

So, we proceed to disassembly!Turn the pallet and stand on her feet.Hammer nail puller at an angle to the cubes, pull over.If you want to keep the dice push myself.Pulling hard, lengthen the lever.It does not work?Then chop blocks ax.Remove the center board with the dice.Keep in mind that some of them will remain in the nails or pull out from hats through both boards.

resulting shield put on another pallet.Straighten the bent nails and knock them with a hammer.

slightly bent nails comfortably beat by pliers.
