I supported Izzy’s website (though I could have easily cobbled something together)... and picked up his plan for a Pallet Pal… a pallet disassembly tool. In this case it is a Pallet Pal made of red Oak recycled from a pallet (seemed appropriate). It is used to disassemble a skid relatively quickly and easily (vs crowbar and hammer…).

Good job. I was wondering how you disassembled the pallet to make the pallet pal. Thanks for sharing.

Very cool, I built something similar, but I like the width of yours better.

My guess…

Let’s see… You place it over a slat-end with the 2×6 lever going under it.
Then, you lower the lever popping the end off the pallet.

? Close ?

Looks like it would work… if you don’t break the Lever board… :)

Looks like Izzy put a strut behind his bar to stiffen it.

I disassembled the donor pallet the ‘hard’ way… with recip saw and a hammer.

I may have to adjust my handle placement (mine is simply screwed together) as I broke most of the boards I pulled off of the one skid I tested it on. (which of course defeats the purpose if you’re trying to reuse the wood). For simple pallet demolition for firewood or whatnot, it works great as is.
