I’m replacing some of the cedar wall shingles on my home. I purchased a shingle ripper (flat bar with hooks to grab nails).
I have not had good luck breaking the nails. I’m hooking the bar over the nails and wacking the bar as hard as I can with a hammer. Nails tend to pull out and bend rather than break.
What am I doing wrong? Do I need to sharpen my shingle ripper hooks?
