i love reclaimed lumber, .. but get a magnet or nailfinder. i lost my ass on a project with reclaimed floorboards that had carpet tacks in them. i spent more in planer blades than i saved on lumber. project looked like a fine antique when finished, but i lost my religion cussing out the planer, knives and carpet tacks. some shops will check out the material for you, but you sort of pay for it. good luck and have fun. what’s the project your using it on ?
