Fig. 691. Withdrawing Nails.—When withdrawing nails place a blockunder the hammer-head as shown (Fig. 692), using more blocks,if necessary, as the nail is withdrawn. To draw the nails from boxes, pry up a board, together withthe nails, a short distance—perhaps ^—and then with a sharpsquick blow of the hammer pound the board back into place, notstriking the nails but the board between them. This will usuallyleave the nail-heads projecting a little above the surface, sothat you can draw them as shown in Fig. 692, and thus savesplitting or defacing the boards and bending the nails, as usuallyresults from smashing or wrenching boxes apart. The quickblow drives the board back before the motion has time to com-municate itself to the nails, on somewhat the same principle that Tools and Operations 505 a bullet makes a round hole in a window pane without smashingthe glass.
