Tool Breaks Down Pallets
Matt Studer, Ken’s Standing Seam, LLC, Bloomville, Ohio: “My dad Kenny and I own a standing seam metal roofing business, and we get steel coils on pallets. We use the pallets to heat our shop, and to break down the pallets we use a tool that my dad made.
  “It consists of a 3-ft. long, 1 1/4-in. dia. heavywall pipe welded at an angle to a U-shaped ‘prybar’ - a length of 1/2-in. thick by 1 1/2-in. wide flat steel bent into a U shape. The operator places the prybar under the slat on both sides of the rail the slat is nailed to, and then presses down on the pipe and against the rail to work the nails up and out. Works great.”
