Interesting tool

Postby KathyJB on Wed Mar 28, 2012 12:19 am

I came across this video from a friend (Tiny Texas Houses) and thought you may want to see this tool they use to take apart old homes. They reuse all they can to rebuild. I wish I would have seen this video when I was remodling my house. I could have insulated a different way. It would have taken more time, but that's ok. You can buy the tool or order the plans to make it for 10 bucks if you're interested.

I just thought it might help someone. The owners don't care if you look at the picture and make yourself one without their plans, they are just interested in saving vintage building materials pre-1950's. When things were made in America with quality in mind.

I could use one. I have a lot of plank board sheathing to remove.
Great find Kathy.
