    Tool advice



    CLICK HERE TO REMOVE THESE ADVERTS
    I have some old yard gates/doors which have just been stripped of paint, I have now noticed that the nails used are the square type that would have been pre-heated before hammering in and the sharp end has been bent over. Great for holding wood together but a nightmare for cutting or planing the doors to size.
    Anyone know of the best tool and blade that will cut the wood and steel nails?

    Any advice greatly appreciated.

    The rage evolution saw (and blades) are great for cutting wood without bothering about nails etc

    The Evolution RAGE Multipurpose 185mm Circular Saw

    I use (and have abused) the chop saw version for work for years.

    As far as I now its tungsten carbide tip blade you require, you even find scraps of metal in chipboard and OSB sheets.

    I'll second that, the RAGE is a really useful bit of kit when working with 2nd hand timber. Mine has had years of abuse & still doing the business.

    yep- rage , blades are a bit expensive but if the teeth are intact, at least one sharpening is poss. as for planing,one with reversible and disposable blades is the answer
    and goggles of course

    if its only one set of doors to do theres no point buying expensive saws. any bog standard carbide tipped blade in any old circular saw will do the job... even with few of the tips missing.
