    Than'ks PERTUSSA for that, I've taken copies of these and will take them to the shed and hopefully make a few of the wooden ones, as these will be perfect for older guys...bosshogg

    Now here's a reply you might not believe, since posting I found the perfect pallet dismantler in the shape of a garden border fork. Standing the pallets up so they lean against those behind them, at a slight angle away from you, the fork is passed down so that the central slot straddles the chosen that carries the slat you want to bust off work the fork both away from you and down as hard as is comfortable, soon the slat starts to pull away from the bearer, drawing the nails with it. All that's required after this is to de-nail the slats and where necessary the bearers where they wouldn't budge from, the ring shanks nails used are tough little critters ...I'll post some pics whenever I can...bosshogg
