I'm planning on burning a bit of an old shed I've torn down. I started to
pull nails, but after an hour and a few pounds of rusty nails, I realized
it was an exersize in futility.
So, I'm planning on burning and then maybe using a big magnet to pick up
the bulk of the old nails.
Does anyone know if Lowes or Home Depot or Sears Hardware sells these? I
know I've seen them in catalogs (maybe Tool Crib or Rockler), but I'd like
to avoid the shipping cost because of the weight.

You might look at a large lumber yard that may cater to roofers.
There is a tool roofers use to clean up after tear offs....as you roll
the magnet across the lawn it picks up the nails.

It is said that the early bird gets the worm,
but it is the second mouse that gets the cheese.
Or just go down to the local car audio shop and see if they have any blown
woofers laying around that you can have. Rip the cone out, drill out the rivets
and you have a nice, round, monster magnet!
my thoughts exactly. well almost... i wouldnt bother cutting away anything
although it will probably work better if you do....
as a side note, you can screw blown speakers to your shop wall backwards and
use the magnets to stick tools and stuff too. works great.
Have an old, scrapped microwave oven lying around? I always
salvage the pair of ceramic magnets from the magnetrons in these.
Very strong and very handy for nail pickup, as well as for holding
tarps to outdoor equipt and umpteen other uses...
