lorry tyre levers seem to work pretty well as does a slitting disc on an angle grinder.
Staffies are softer than you think.

We gave son a hammer and told him to think of it as rugby training, an hour later there was a huge pile of excess wood and the fence was ready to go up round the veg plot :lol:

I can rent him out but he eats non stop which puts some off :lol:

Have taken home a total of 16 EuroPallets from my workplace last week.  Thankfully they are in plentiful supply, all I had to do was ask the Works Engineer if he minded that I took them.
Fingers crossed these 16 pallets will be turned into a load of picket fencing for my allotment  8)

Ripping them apart depends on how they're held together (to state the xxxx obvious). Nails pull out quite easily but other fixings can be really hard to get out. Sometimes I just lever the wood apart and cut through the metal with a hacksaw.
Self-sufficient in rasberries and bindweed. Slug pellets can be handy.

Ali levered the wood apart, knocked the wood back in again leaving the nails heads sticking out and easier to remove :D

I'm starting a new job at the end of November at a printers and when I was shown round i saw they had loads of small pallets and I asked what they did with the old ones they said took them to the tip so I shall be  rehoming as many as I can - they are smaller so easier for me  to manage and will fit in the car.

Just been in to the local plumbers shop on the industrial estate near the site.Asked if they had any more of the 6ftX2Ft pallets I had fortnight previously.No they were with something on special offer.No more to be had.Wandered further down the estate and found a newly started metal fabrication works with a HUGE stack of big pallets.Yes mate you can,take as many as you like.Who wants to BUY 6 ft x4ft pallets

got the pallets for the new sparragrass raised bed.They are brilliant I pulled them apart by hand as they are only STAPLED together.I will have to get some more as I looked at another site in town and saw that someone had made a small cage to go over their brassicas with similar 3"x1/2 timbers.

Finished the raised bed today .Looks a blimmin big hole to fill up.It s about 2 cubic metres so I will see the local farmer for some manure.I ve got a small raised bed at home so I will bag up the compost out of that and take up there.
Best thing ,another plot holder came along and asked what it was for ,how much it cost to build(only thing I paid for were the nails and they were very cheap from Lidl about 6 years go)He said he would like to have a go at building one as he was very impressed with mine.

It's amassing what can be done with pallets, it's just a case of getting them before the bonfire does :D
