Nail puller

Bruce, I have successfully used the nail puller that
nomally, as you correctly point out, leaves divots,
on nails that are part way out but whose head has broken
off. I just close the jaws on the exposed shank and
lever it out. This doesn't always work though, for
example if the wood is very hard and or the nail rusty,
it may just bit off the shank. When this has happend,
I've found that vice grips give the same result. If
anybody knows a good way to get the nail out (when
it can't be driven in, as in salvageing lumber) I
would like to hear about it.
