Subject: Tech: Getting nails out of old wood
Not quite the tech we are used to but old tech :-)

Just lifted lots of old floor tiles because they had been laid, not very well, on plywood which had been stapled, with heavy duty staples, to the old floorboards. The tiles are gone and so is the plywood. What is left is dozens of staples embedded in the floorboards.

Now, do I risk spending half a day on my arthritic knees to pull them up? Do I spend half a day stooped over bashing them flat with a hammer? Or is one of you clever people going to come up with a better alternative? :-)
