For my birthday a couple of weeks ago, I had a birthday cake (which was yummy), a promise of driving fast cars round Silverstone (in October, can’t wait) and this magic yellow bar thingy which is definitely its technical name because it is a bar and it is yellow. And it is MAGIC!
The age-old problem of dismantling pallets is well-known to those of us who, well, dismantle pallets in the (in my case) oft-mistaken belief we can re-purpose the wood into something else – a chair, a gate (ha ha) or a scale model of the Severn Bridge (only kidding, at least for now). Well, this device just slots in either side of the planks and with very little pressure levers them up in a it-uses-physics-and-leverage-cleverness fashion.
So, from this:
took 9 minutes. Another 16 minutes elapsed whilst I removed the vicious nails.
Not quite sure what to do with the three supports – having used two of them to put the planks over whilst doing the gnilain, I think I’ll leave them in case the assemblies are useful as they are.
Next time on Palletable DIY: the DIY begins. What could possibly go wrong? There could be a list…
MAGIC YELLOW BAR THINGY – it comes from, er, somewhere, the Snail knows, I’ll put it here when she reminds me. It was some guy on Twitter apparently. Or Hogwarts.
