’52 Penn Yan Captivator Bottom Plank Removal 12 16 2014

Thanks to the several of you who asked to see how we excise a bottom plank once all of the nails have been removed.
Here is a clip showing John and me, but mainly John using one of our Fein Multi-Masters and a smooth semi-circular blade to literally vibrate through the wood filler that the previous worker, now dubbed Bondo Man, insisted on paying into every seam.
This stuff is now akin to concrete. Our challenge is to cut through it without damaging the edges of the neighboring planks.
