Excellent video. You forgot to mention one tool, though. Patience!

That was good info. One tool I couldn’t be without is my needle nose vise grip pliers. They really grab and don’t let go.

Good point. I sometimes forget that not everyone has the patience for some of the woodworking stuff we do :)

I have a pair of those too, but I find them too bulky at the tip for pulling small nails. I’m a fan too of the grab they have.

Interesting info and video- Keep up the good work of sharing experience to others. When the video around 7:28 with the multi air gun nail problem.
I wondered who could this??? Then as a 40+ year woodworker, I reflected back on myself and repairs that I performed in the early years…
Ps. We did not have air nailers back then but other methods that did the same thing.
