I pried off some deckboards and the nails stayed in the joists. I want to replace the boards, so I need to remove the nails (yes, I could cut them, but I'm curious how to remove them :) ).
Using the claw of a hammer they wouldn't budge, and some of them I even broke the head right off (it kind of folded up and the "wings" broke off).
So then I got this Crescent 19" Nail Puller and it grabs on super tight even without the heads, but even when I throw my whole weight into them they don't budge.
Are these sometimes just a lost cause that you need to cut off? Or is there some magic trick I'm missing out on to pull them out?
