Re: pallets

I use a fairly large head rubber mallet (increases surface area so more effective ad decreases risk of breaking wood), have a claw hammer on hand to pull out any stubborn nails. Depending on how well it all comes apart and what I'm using the pallet for, I have also run down the sides with a circular saw (a jigsaw would also work). Keep the scraps for kindling.
