Wield Greater Leverage
Facing the task of removing nails from my turkey barn roofs, I improvised. For better prying power, I took the sliding hammer off of a dent puller and welded it to a large pair of wire cutters. To operate, I simply slide the hammer in, pinch the nail head, and jerk the hammer up. It works so much better than a wrecking bar.
