Fence Staple Puller Made To Last
Im 75 years old and have used this staple puller for much of my life. It works so well, I dont want the design to be lost so I thought Id share it with other FARM SHOW readers, says Ralph E. Curtiss Jr., West Grove, Penn.
  The original tool was forged for my father in about 1950 by an African-American blacksmith named Henry Sims in Falls Church, Va. Ive never seen another one like it and it has worked superbly for everyone in our family.
  I have made many of them for family and friends over the years. Anyone with a means of heating metal can forge it from a piece of 1/2-in. steel rod. You can also grind a brick-pointing chisel down into this shape.
