Yesterday, we talked about dismantling a pallet using a reciprocating saw. If you missed the post you can pick it up by clicking on the 31 Days Working with Pallets landing page.
Today, I’m going to introduce you to my friend Troy Young who’s the owner of both, Facebook Group: Pallet Crazy and Pallet Pall Facebook Page. He also is the creator of the Pallet Pall and the Adjusta-Pall.
What are they? They’re a pallet busting tool. By simply inserting a bar into either Pallet Palls, it turns the chore of breaking apart the pallets into a breeze. No blades or electricity needed.
Troy currently offers two versions, the Fixed Pallet Pall, and the Adjusta-Pall. The Fixed Pallet Pall is an all-one-piece with adjustable bolts for securing a handle (not included). The Adjusta-Pall is completely adjustable giving you the freedom to widen the forks for larger pallets.
Want it in your favorite color? Just ask. Troy offers both tools in multiple colors of your choice for a small additional fee.
If you would like to see the Pallet Pall in action, click on Pallet Pall Videos or visit the Pallet Pall Facebook Page.
Oh, and don’t forget to like Pallet Pall on Facebook and join the Pallet Crazy community.
I interviewed Troy and here is what he had to share:
Q. Tell us a little about yourself.
A. I’m a 52-year-old male from Las Cruces NM. I’m happily married with a 14-year-old daughter. I work full time as an Electrical Estimator for a large Electrical contractor.
Q.How long have you worked with pallets?
A. I started messing with pallets about a year ago as a way to use up some of the pallets at work.
Q.How did you learn what you know today?
A. I started off using a hammer and pry bar but was discouraged at its lack of performance. They produced too much waste. I happened upon a crude version of my first prototype on a woodworking site and thought I can design a much better version of this. And I did! I went through 3 different generations before coming up with the latest and greatest version, The Adjusta-Pall. I even refined the Fixed Position Model by narrowing the forks and making the steel thicker.
Q.What are your go-to tools of the trade?
A. As for go-to tools, of course, my Pallet Palls, jigsaw, and a palm sander.
Q.Anything else you would like to share?
I also build Pallet art, such as Guitars and Picks and some signs. I don’t have a stencil maker so signs are not a favorite project for me. I prefer projects w/o writing on them.
Here are a few of Troy’s creations. I think he does a spectacular job, don’t you agree?
I sure hope you enjoyed today’s How to Dismantle a Pallet Part Two.
If you enjoy working with pallets and you’re looking for an easier way to dismantle them, Troy can help you out. Pay him a visit over at Pallet Pall.
Stop back tomorrow for another pallet related post. Hope to see you then.
